50 - 50 Senate
NPR's Peter Kenyon reports on conversations going on in the Senate about how they expect to accomplish anything in the 107th Congress. With one race still undecided, the new Senate now stands at 50 Republicans and 49 Democrats. If Democrat Maria Cantwell ultimately unseats Republican Senator Slade Gorton in Washington State, it will be 50-50 -- with control resting on who wins the White House. Democrats are already floating the idea of a power-sharing agreement.
