We continue our coverage of the presidential election by hosting a roundtable discussion with Benjamin Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP and Laura Flanders, host of GritTV. While Democrats have retained control of the U.S. Senate, Republicans held on to the 435-member House in part thanks to redistricting. The Democrats increased their Senate lead with Elizabeth Warren's defeat of Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts. Warren, a champion of Wall Street reform, now joins the same Senate that refused to confirm her to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
