Democrats Take Hold Of New York State Senate

Video ​President Donald Trump boards Air Force One on Monday in Andrews Air Force Base Maryland en route to a series

Several television networks, including the president's favorite Fox News Channel, yanked a Trump campaign advertisement off the air on the eve of the election, determining that its portrayal of a murderous immigrant went too far. At the time that win was called, Republicans had 51 seats, gaining three seats; Democrats had 44. It would prove even more hard for the White House to push critical legislation through Congress if the Democrats manage to win the House and the Senate.

Democrats rode a wave of dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump to win control of the US House of Representatives on Tuesday, Fox News and NBC News projected, giving Democrats the opportunity to block Trump's agenda and open his administration to intense scrutiny.

"We always knew these races are going to be close", said Rep. Katherine Clark of MA, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts.

"What it means to be Republican is being rewritten as we speak", Fleischer said.

Voting in Chicago, James Gerlock, 27, a Republican, said he wanted to see more of the soaring economic growth that Trump says is the fruit of his business-friendly policies.

"We have already seen a huge turnout, people out and about knocking on doors, making sure everybody gets out there, but I think turnout will be very, very high", Democratic candidate Katie Porter, who is running in Irvine, California, against two-term Republican incumbent Mimi Walters, told AFP.

After a hectic week of campaigning, Trump spent Tuesday at the White House awaiting exit polls and final results.

Healthcare prevention plan worthy, but funding an issue

Michael Thomas' Celebration 'Brought a Tear' to Joe Horn's Eye
And while some lamented the decision, the man responsible for the original iconic celebration gave it his stamp of approval. Thomas then went to the goal post and lifted up the padding around the base of the post, where he had hidden a cell phone.

Pep Guardiola insists Manchester City's success is not exclusively down to money
And of course, like many, many clubs around the world there they have a lot of money, but they are also an incredible club. Without good players we can not do that. "That's why I will always defend, especially, my players and what they do".

The result upends the balance of power in Washington, where Trump has enjoyed an easy ride from Republican dominance of both houses of Congress since his shock election in 2016. But two years after an election that proved polls and prognosticators wrong, an air of uncertainty - and stormy weather across parts of the country - clouded the outcome of high-stakes elections from Florida to Alaska and everywhere in between. Perhaps more important, they would win subpoena power to investigate Trump's many personal and professional missteps.

Trump was spending the day at the White House, tweeting support for Republicans in the toughest races and preparing to watch the results alongside friends and family, his spokeswoman said. Like other Democrats across the country, Spanberger emphasized protecting people with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or charged more by insurers.

New figures on the eve of the polls confirmed that job growth is soaring and Trump gives himself credit for the "hottest economy on Earth".

Democrats are drawing strength from women and college-educated voters in general, who swung decidedly against Trump since his election.

He deployed more than 5,000 troops to the border and suggested he may triple that number. From 6 p.m.to 7 p.m., insiders will have their eyes on Lexington, where Republican incumbent Andy Barr is up against Democratic challenger Amy McGrath, a retired Marine. For example, Democrats, who need to flip 23 seats could pick up as many as nine in New York State during this hour alone. At least 255 women were on the ballot as major party congressional candidates. I mean, I only became a citizen previous year", said Kevin Ombija, a first-time voter originally from Kenya who now lives in Washington, D.C. "Issues of immigrants are very dear to me. Democratic Senate incumbents are up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri - states Trump carried by nearly 25 percentage points on average two years ago.

"In 2010 ... it was more about did you agree or disagree with Obamacare?" he recalled.

"We're not some fringe element of the Democratic Party". Campaigns unfolded against a backdrop of jarring political imagery, overheated rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president.
