Egyptians vote, but concerns remain over democracy progress – Rep. Dreier on monitoring the election

For the second straight day, Egyptians are headed to the polls Tuesday to vote in the country's parliamentary elections. These are the first parliamentary elections held since Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule was brought to an end in February. 

So far the turnout has been huge. But some Egyptians remained skeptical of whether these elections would actually lead to civilian control of the country.

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans speaks with Republican Congressman David Dreier, who's in Egypt to monitor the election process.  As Dreier tells Romans, "this is not a perfect election...but things have gone much better than people have feared."
