Off-year Election Results and Water for California

Hosted by

Governor Schwarzenegger calls it "historic and comprehensive."  One critic says it’s "a drop in the bucket." Well hear about the water package passed in the wee hours of this morning. Also, Mayor Villaraigosa says naming a new chief of police was his most important appointment. What’s next? We talk with him about Charlie Beck, city policies and politics. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Republicans took governorships from Democrats in Virginia and New Jersey. A Democrat took a congressional seat from Republicans in upstate New York.  Maine voters said "no" to same-sex marriage. What messages, if any, do "off-year elections" carry for national politics?
