On this edition of Political Rewind, we ask whether the spectacle playing out in the U.S. Senate tarnished its reputation. This week, the United States Supreme Court began a new term with eight justices sitting on the bench. As the battle over who will fill the next seat continues, how will the court proceed to preserve its reputation and act as a non-partisan arbiter of justice?

Plus, how do voters respond to candidates with financial troubles? Is it something to look past or is it in the forefront of their minds when entering the polls?
