During coverage of last night’s elections, MSNBC host and Nation editor-at-large Chris Hayes contrasted Tuesday’s results with the off-year elections of four years prior. While GOP wins in 2009 predicted a forthcoming House takeover, last night’s results don’t point to “the same kind of prophecy,” Hayes observed. He was later joined by colleagues Alex Wagner and Steve Kornacki to talk Chris Christie’s re-election and what it means for the New Jersey governor’s almost inevitable 2016 run for president.
