All across the country, Americans are going to the polls, with Republicans and Democrats fighting hard to control the House and Senate in Washington. One of the most closely watched races is right here in Missouri, where Democrat Claire McCaskill is trying to win the U.S. Senate seat held by Republican Jim Talent. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe says Democrats need to win races in six states today to take control of the Senate, and the task cannot be completed without a McCaskill win. He predicts McCaskill will win in Missouri, with the Democrats winning both the House and the Senate in Washington. Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman agrees there’s great importance attached to the Missouri contest, a contest he sees as a contrast between Talent and McCaskill. Mehlman says Talent has initiatiated or supported legislation that is important to Missouri and will continue to work hard for this state if he’s returned to the Senate. Mehlaman expects Talent to come out on top in Missouri, with the GOP holding control of both houses of Congress.
