The Tea Party claimed some major victories during in yesterday's mid-term elections. Marco Rubio won the Senate seat in Florida, Nikki Haley will become governor of South Carolina, and Rand Paul took a decisive victory in the Kentucky Senate race. 

But the Tea Party had losses, as well, both in Nevada, with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pulling out a narrow win against oppponent Sharron Angle, and Delaware, where Republican Christine O'Donnell lost her Senate bid against Democrat Chris Coons.

So what do the wins and losses add up to for Tea Party members across the country? Matt Kibbe is the President of FreedomWorks and author of the book, "Give Us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto." Todd Zwillich, the Takeaway's Washington correspondent, also weighs in.
