NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- It was a big week in Washington, and a big week as well for New York's Senior Senator Chuck Schumer.

In this week's episode of Up Close, we sit down with the Senate Majority Leader, to discuss the close margins in our current government.

Democrats in the midterms picked up a Republican seat, but on Capitol Hill, Republicans will soon control the House of Representatives.

Are we in for two years of gridlock or two years of bipartisan effort to get things done in Washington?

Plus, Bill Ritter talks with ABC Political Director Rick Klein and political consultant Hank Sheinkopf about former President Donald Trump's political future.
