Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and challenger Sharron Angle faced off in their first – and only – debate last night. Polls show Reid and Angle running virtually neck and neck. 

Ian Mylchreest, Senior Producer for KNPR's State of the Union, joins us with a re-cap of the debate. Mylchreest says the contest isn't as much about Angle's popularity as it is about Reid's unpopularity. Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich has been watching the race from Capitol Hill.

What's going to happen when a lot of these tea party people actually show up at the Capitol? I remember when Sonny Bono got elected and was overwhelmed by the legislative process and even the lingo. Will these folks know how to govern?
