Obama Addresses Midterm Election Results


Update: President Obama has concluded his press conference. It was the second longest of his presidency. Here is a transcript from the Washington Post.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to discuss the results of the midterm elections this afternoon. To briefly recap: Having seized the Senate for the first time in eight years, Republicans now control both houses of Congress. They also scored a handful of key governor races. To top it off, a new age of the McConnellsance has been all but solidified.
