Keyes Hopes to Challenge Obama on Social Policy

Alan Keyes, the new Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Illinois, says he chose to run because of Democrat Barack Obama's record on social issues. Keyes, a Maryland resident, political commentator and two-time presidential candidate, was tapped to run after a scandal ended the campaign of the previous GOP candidate. Hear Keyes and NPR's Michele Norris.
