What GOP ‘Rookies’?

The expected GOP landslide may not be the revolution some are expecting: Politico surveyed the 70 potential GOP freshmen, and found that two-thirds have political experience. Another surprise: Only one of the potential freshmen committed to join Michele Bachmann’s Tea Party caucus. Also, the average age would be 45, as opposed to the current House average of 56, and a new GOP caucus would include more women and minorities.
