5th, 2014. good morning. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. this morning there is a new political landscape in washington. the midterm elections can only be described as a route republicans throttled democrats, seizing control of the senate and expanding their control of the house. cbs news projects the republicans picked up at least seven seats in the senate. the republicans ousted democratic incumbent s north carolina, arkansas, and ohio. they won in south dakota, virginia, and iowa. it is the first time the gop has held the majority in the senate since 2006. and a man likely to become the new senate majority leader is the current minority leader, kentucky's mitch mcconnell. he easily won re-election in one of the country's most watched races. mcconnell trumped

4:03 am
mitch mcconnell is now ready to achieve his long-time goal as senate majority leader. >> i've heard your concerns. i made them my own. you will be heard in washington. >> republicans picked up seats in key battleground states including north carolina. >> this victory is our victory. >> colorado. >> tonight we shook senate. >> and in iowa where joanni ernt picked up the seat. they call tuesday's result as rejection of president obama's policies and a redirection of the democratic party. they have promised they will cooperate with republicans. >> i promise you i will work with anyone in the senate, democrats, republicans, independents to get things done. >> senate harry reid, the

current majority leader, said in a statement the message from voters is clear. they want us to work together. republicans also expanded their majority in the house and held onto important governmentships in a win that will redraw the map for the president's final two years in the office. one still undecided seat is still in louisiana. democratic senator mary landry will face bill cassidy, republican congressman on december 6th to decide that race. overall, anne-marie, voters are going to be watching washington and looking at the democrat to see if they can work with the white house or will there continue to be political gridlock. >> thank you. shelly monroe capito is the first republican and tim scott

is the first black senator-elected from the south since reconstruction. there were 36 gubernatorial races. republicans picked up four governorships, democrats struggled in states they usually win losing contests in illinois, maryland, and massachusetts. republican congressman scott walker wins his third election in four years. walker was first elected in 2010 and then survived a recall vote in 2012. his win last night has led many to speculate he could make a bid for the white house in 2016 but a majority of wisconsin voters polled that he should not run for president. the decisive republican whip was fueled by voter discontent with the president and washington in general. exit polls found that half of those questions say they expect the next generation of americans to be worse off.

against the president. 71% are worried about a terror attack. marlie hall, cbs news, new york. for more now we're joined by bob shapiro, professor of political science at columbia university. good morning, professor. >> good morning. >> so i want to ask you. were you at all surprised by the sheer number of republican wins in this election? >> yes, i was very surprised by the number of republican wins. i expected the democrats to pick up at least one or two of the close races and i was particularly surprised by what happened in the governor races in maryland, illinois, and massachusetts. >> so now we look ahead and what can voters expect to happen in washington? are we going to see more gridlock, less gridlock?
4:08 am
what's the next two years for the president going to be like? >> it could be more, it could be less. at the moment a lot of the political leaders on both sides of the aisles in congress are talking about working together but their track record thus far hasn't been very good. in addition to that the fact that the republicans did so well in this election might motivate many of them to push harder for more conservative policies which the democrats in the senate would try to prevent filibustering. >> i'm sure everyone has an eye of 2016. how do last night's results actually impact what may happen in a presidential race? >> well, to me it looks -- this election looks a lot like what happened to the republicans in 2006. that suggested that they would have an uphill battle for the presidency in 2008, and i think the democrats have much more of an uphill battle than they were expecting based on demographic trends, and think what they need
4:09 am
to do is show they can govern effectively as a way of showing that they can rebound from the current election and, you know, move the country forward in a positive enough way to advantage the next democratic candidate for president, which at this moment is hillary clinton. >> thank you, bob shapiro, so much for joining us. they join colorado and washington where voters approve recreational use of pot two years ago. voters in alaska are also deciding a similar measure. coming up, a basketball star is targeted in a knife attack. new details on how former fugitive eric frein kept connected on the internet while he was on the run. this is the "cbs morning news." ...we're going to need you on the runway.
