Uruguay elections aftermath: Presidential election goes to run-off

Uruguay is headed for a runoff after no candidate in Sunday's presidential elections managed to win an outright majority. Left leaning Former President Tabare Vazquez of the Broad Front party will go head-to-head on November 30th with Luis Lacalle Pou of the center-right National Party. CCTV America's Joel Richards reports.
