Where does the GOP go from here? Amanpour
Regardless of who wins the Georgia's Senate runoff next week, the Democrats will hold the Senate in the next Congress, after an expected red wave at the midterms turned out to be more of a light splash. Even though the GOP took the House, the repercussions of that vote are spelling trouble for Kevin McCarthy, as fringe members of his party push back against his candidacy for House speaker.

Asa Hutchinson, who has been Governor of Arkansas since 2015 and will soon leave the post after the maximum two terms, joins the show to discuss. 
Also on today's show: Dr. Anthony Fauci, author Tiya Miles.
