Hugo Chavez affirmed in Venezuelan elections

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez passed an important election test Sunday with many of his candidates winning. However, the opposition also gained ground in some areas.

"The people are telling me: 'Chavez continue down the same road,'" said Chavez in reference to his "21st century socialism."
