Republicans in the House: A New Era on Capitol Hill

Hosted by  • 

Tomorrow's Republican takeover of Congress will be heavy with symbols appealing to Tea Party stalwarts and other enemies of "Big Government." We hear about the strategy, the agenda and the prospects for Democrats to fight back. Also, the Governor of Pakistan's Punjab Province is assassinated, and evidence held since 1979 has helped clear a Texas man who spent 30 years for rape, robber and abduction — crimes DNA analysis shows he didn't commit.
