DW News published this video item, entitled “Germany’s conservatives are losing ballots amid corruption scandal | DW News” – below is their description.

Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats suffered significant poll losses in two southwestern states during recent regional elections. Victories for the Greens and the Social Democrats – but everyone is talking about the losers, not the winners. The ballots kick off a year of voting in Germany — culminating in national elections in September. Chancellor Merkel is not running again. Now her party is concerned these election results could be a bad omen of things to come. I’ll speak to one CDU lawmaker in a moment, but first this look at how the party is reacting to Sunday’s defeat.
