Weekly Roundup: Thursday, September 28

More than a week after Hurricane Maria, much of Puerto Rico is still without power and drinking water, and there is growing criticism that the Trump administration has been slow to respond. Repeal-and-replace is dead - again - and Republicans are turning their attention to tax overhaul. And the Senate candidate backed by President Trump and Mitch McConnell lost in Alabama. This episode: host/congressional reporter Scott Detrow, White House correspondent Tamara Keith and national political correspondent Mara Liasson.
