Today on “Kresta in the Afternoon,” we review the midterm elections. What do the Republican victories in the House, Senate and at the state level mean for America? What do they suggest Americans feel about President Obama and his policies? What happens now in Washington? Will Obama be willing to work with a Republican-controlled Congress? What can we expect from the final two years of his presidency? Most importantly, what does all this mean for Catholics? We answer these questions and more on a special midterm elections edition of “Kresta in the Afternoon.” And if you need a break from the political talk, we’ll also be talking to Steven Greydanus about two of the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
