We’re nearing the end of the campaign trail for candidates seeking to win over voters in this November’s upcoming mid-term elections.  Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich and Mike Shear, chief political reporter for the Caucus Blog at our partner The New York Times, are joining us every Tuesday to give us updates on what the candidates are up to on the trail.

Todd says this week it's all about Obama's trip out West to help save Senate seats. Michael Shear has noticed some wacky political snafus that happen to coincide with that same geographical area. Coicidence? Maybe, but it does seem like the campaign trail is turning into the Wild Wild West during these last weeks before the mid-terms.
