NEWSCAST: GOP Leaders Signal A Move To Bipartisanship

Incoming Florida Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) and House Speaker Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel) say they want Republicans and Democrats to work together. 

Weatherford says the people have spoken in re-electing President Obama.

"Anyone who wishes for him to not succeed at this point is betting against America and they're wishing against the success of America," Weatherford said. 

"What we need is a Congress and a president who, for five seconds can just put down the partisanship and try to address some of the real fiscal challenges that are facing this country,"

The GOP lost a few seats in both Florida chambers, but still hold a comfortable majority.
