Referendum on statesmanship


By Byron McNutt

WITH THE GENERAL Election less than a week away, are you going to the polls confident the nation will elect leaders that can put partisanship aside and make us proud again by acting in a responsible and statesmen-like manner?

This election season has had an intense focus on the race for the White House while overshadowing the role played by Congress. After all, we are electing 435 members of the House and filling 33 seats in the Senate.

The experts predict the House will remain in control of the Republicans. The majority in the Senate could go either way with Democrats currently in control. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are in a very close race, with the incumbent with the advantage. Regardless who wins, he will have a split Congress.
