The sudden resignation of C.I.A. Director General David Petraeus has stunned many in both Congress and the intelligence community at large.
Tonight on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman, Representative Peter King, said "This is a real loss for the country, a real loss for the CIA. We're going to lose the best man for the job, but again America is adaptable. Put it this way, anytime you lose David Petraeus, the country is not as safe as it could be."
Although the CIA has announced the General would not testify at next week's hearing on the attack in Benghazi, Rep. King said General Petraeus is "at the center of this, and there are answers that only he has." Asked by Burnett if he will ask that the General still testify, Rep. King said "Absolutely, to me, he's an absolutely necessary witness."
CNN's Ashleigh Banfield spoke to Florida's Secretary of State Ken Detzner about the criticism his state has received on voting issues. Mr. Detzner stated "this problem is going to be solved."

FULL TRANSCRIPT AND IMAGE AFTER THE JUMP.
Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Keli Carender says that the Republicans did not have a good ground game for the election and Mitt Romney’s health care legislation in Massachusetts was a liability.
On why Romney lost the election, Carender says, “In a nutshell, the Republicans sat on their hands for four years. After 2008, you had Barack Obama and the Democrats who left paid staffers in critical swing states and offices open, and they were working to indentify new voters… that they managed to register in the four years between the two elections. And I don’t know what the Republicans were doing. The Tea Party was just getting started.”
