Congress is back in Washington D.C. for a couple of weeks before the midterm elections.

President Obama will address the nation this Wednesday on a strategy to address the Sunni extremist group — ISIS — and will meet with members of Congress on the same subject Thursday.

NPR’s politics editor Charlie Mahtesian talks to Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about what the President might ask of Congress, what else is on the Congressional agenda, and which incumbents are faltering in pre-election polls.
