Dick Durbin assesses his new Senate colleague Mark Kirk

Sen. Durbin has a new partner in the Senate: Mark Kirk.

Republicans picked up enough seats in the midterm elections to win back the House, but the Senate is still run by the Democrats.

That might make President Obama’s job easier. He won’t face a totally divided Congress as he tackles future items on his agenda.

Still, even Senate Democrats are vowing to work with their new Republican counterparts.

Among them, Illinois’ Senior Senator, Dick Durbin.

After Tuesday’s election, Durbin has a Republican counterpart for the first time in five years: Mark Kirk. Senator Durbin talked about the challenges ahead.
