Lawmakers returned to Capitol Hill this week after a long midterm hiatus, and Hits and Misses is back, too. Both chambers saw a flurry of activity, with leadership elections; House Republicans finally winning control of the chamber, albeit with a wafer-thin majority, eight days after Election Day; and both parties trying to finish pressing, lame-duck work.
