Minn. Republicans look for fresh faces after Bachmann, Pawlenty

Larry Jacobs discusses the need for the Republican party to find new stars.

"I think there's probably going to be more pressure on the party, not only to rebuild financially, but to pick up its game in terms of recruiting top caliber candidates," Jacobs said. "It went from an embarrassment of riches three or four years ago, with Tim Pawlenty and a number of other bright young faces in the Republican Party, to a point now where the bench is a little bit empty."
