Brian Naylor Reports On The Newly Elected Members

of the House of Representatives, who make up the Freshman Class of the 105th Congress. Generally, they say they'll take a more pragmatic and less confrontational approach than their immediate predecessors. Of the 73 new members elected this year, 41 are Democrats. That's considerably different from 1994, when 73 of the 86 newly elected members were Republicans.
