End In Sight For Ga., Minn. Elections

For those who thought this week's holiday was to give thanks to the fact that the elections are over, think again. Georgia voters go to the polls on Tuesday to resolve a Senate race that failed to result in a winner on Nov. 4. They're still counting votes in Minnesota in the Senate race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken.

New senators will be picked to replace Barack Obama in Illinois and, assuming she's named secretary of state, Hillary Clinton in New York. And a new senator has been named in Delaware to succeed Joe Biden — with the expectation that it could lead to another Biden in the Senate.

Host Scott Simon asks NPR political editor Ken Rudin to make sense of all the political shuffling.
