Pelosi's Spouse Attacked, Pennsylvania Senate, Train Labor Dispute : The NPR Politics Podcast A man broke into the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and attacked her husband. The speaker was not home at the time and her husband is expected to make a full recovery. But, a source briefed on the attack told NPR, the assailant was looking for the Speaker.

In Pennsylvania, a debate challenged Democrat John Fetterman as he continues to recover from a stroke. Though he is still ahead of his opponent, Republican Mehmet Oz, the race has tightened in the past month.

And a major train strike appears possible after the midterm elections as a labor dispute the White House weighed into resolve has begun to unravel after two major unions voted against a proposed deal.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, voting correspondent Miles Parks, national political correspondent Don Gonyea, and politics reporter Ximena Bustillo.
