Barring a polling error significantly greater and more improbable than the 2016 election, Joe Biden looks poised to reclaim the White House for the Democrats on November 3. The real question seems to be whether or not Biden will begin his term with majorities in both chambers of Congress.

The House is a lock to remain in Democratic control, but the Senate poses a greater challenge. Democrats likely need a four-seat swing to tip the scales in their favor.

Recently, I was joined on-air by Boston Globe reporter Victoria McGrane, who has been covering the key Senate races across the country that will decide who controls the upper chamber. This includes one race close by between Maine Democratic Speaker of the House Sara Gideon and Senator Susan Collins, the only Republican left in New England's delegation to Congress.

We discuss the Senate race in Maine, seats that are now in play for the Democrats that weren't before, and the role the presidential candidates have played in the race.
