There are 36 governors' races under way, and 13 of those are races competitive, NPR's Ken Rudin says. Three of them are in Nevada, Minnesota and Iowa — and Robert Siegel and Michele Norris focus on those competitive races with political experts today.

First, Robert Siegel talks with David Yepsen, a columnist for The Des Moines Register, about Iowa's gubernatorial race.

Then, Michele Norris talks with Laura McCallum, capital bureau chief for Minnesota Public Radio, about the race in that state.

And finally, Robert Siegel talks with Molly Ball, political reporter at the Las Vegas Review Journal, about Nevada's race for governor.
