Voters Choose Divided Government

Hosted by

President Obama now faces a divided Congress, with Republicans taking over the House and Democrats barely holding on to the Senate. We talk about what happened yesterday and what it might mean for the future. Also, California’s the state that often establishes national trends.  So what does it mean that, in yesterday’s election, it went solidly for the Democrats?   

Banner image: Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada (L) won re-lection and retains his position as Senate Majority Leader. Although Democrat Nancy Pelosi won re-election to her California House seat, she will lose the Speakership to Republican John Boehner of Ohio.
