The elections are almost here - and Pennsylvania's Senate race is one of the country's most closely watched races. Republican Senator Pat Toomey and his Democratic challenger, Katie McGinty, are in a neck-in-neck contest - the outcome of which could play a pivotal role in which party controls the Senate next year.

Senator Toomey declined the invitation to be interviewed. 

Katie McGinty is the former chief of staff for Govenor Tom Wolf. She served as secretary of the department of environmental protection under Governor Ed Rendell and before that, was chair of the White House council on environmental quality under Bill Clinton. Between government positions, she served on the board of directors of several energy-related firms.
