AIR DATE: January 22, 2010

Republican Scott Brown has defeated Democrat Martha Coakley. That makes Brown the first Republican to go to the US Senate on behalf of Massachusetts since 1972. Today we've already heard plenty about what Brown's victory does or doesn't signal about the national mood...

And does it affect Reid's prospects for re-election in 10 months?

Lisa Mascaro, Washington correspondent for the Las Vegas Sun joins us by phone from Washington DC. Also on the line is Steve Sebelius editor of Las Vegas City Life.
