NPR's Don Gonyea reports on the election of James P. Hoffa as president of the Teamsters union. Hoffa claimed victory this weekend, though complete results won't be in until later today and will need to be validated by federal overseers. Hoffa is the son of Jimmy Hoffa, who made the Teamsters the most powerful union in the country during the 50s and 60s and was convicted of jury tampering, fraud and conspiracy before disappearing in 1975.
