RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

This battle was decided by a tough economy. And if there was any doubt, voters made it clear on Tuesday. Illinois voter Thalan Doherty(ph) has one question.

Ms. THALAN DOHERTY: So what are they going to do to ensure that we stay employed? That's what's most important to me.

MONTAGNE: Wisconsin voter Deedee Wytell(ph), who also lives in Wisconsin, hopes the new Republican lawmakers will be more responsible with taxpayer dollars.

Ms. DEEDEE WYTELL: I am shocked that America has lost the belief that we need to balance our checkbook, like the American taxpayers do.

MONTAGNE: Some comments from voters in Wisconsin. And you're listening to all the results this morning on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News.
