*Brownstein election analysis

*In-depth look at House races such as Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.), governor’s races

*Major Garrett on how 2013 could play out: “Regardless of whether a Republican or Democrat is in the White House in 2012, the reconciliation process will be key to advancing GOP objectives in Congress.”
