2:00 amWashington Week [#5150H] * Republicans scored a significant victory in Wisconsin this week when voters decided to keep first-term Governor Scott Walker in office. Walker won 53% of the vote in an election engineered by opponents of his cost-cutting budget strategy that included limiting union rights for most public workers. Outside donations flooded into the state for both sides but the majority of the money came from conservatives who supported Walker.
* But there was some positive news for Democrats. Exit polls found 51% of Wisconsin voters say they will support President Barack Obama in November, while 44% said they will support Romney.

We'll get answers and analysis from John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News and Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News.

Ms. Watson shows us that no matter what our sickness or condition, putting our GPS in balance will put us back on the road to better health.
