Dems seize House control, but GOP retains Senate

US Democrats win House, Republicans keep Senate

A Democratic "Blue Wave" ran into a Republican "Red Wall" in Middle America allowing President Trump's party to expand its slim majority in the Senate, even as the Democratic Party recaptured the House of Representatives after eight years in the opposition benches.

With winners called in all but one statewide race, Republicans were on pace to gain three seats in the Senate and defended their lead in governorships by a two-seat margin.

Both President Donald Trump and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi spoke Wednesday about their desire to work across the aisle on bipartisan policy initiatives in the new Congress.

"The Democrats in the House will have to decide just how much presidential harassment they think is good strategy", the Kentucky Republican told reporters when asked about the likelihood of Democrats seeking to get Trump's tax returns.

"I thought it was very close to complete victory", Trump said, adding that he would "almost have to think about" whether he would have preferred Republicans to retain a slim majority in the House instead of their outright loss. It wasn't clear what "leaks" he was referring to.

Many of them have made history- such as the first two Muslim American women elected to Congress, the first Native American women elected to Congress and the first woman senators for their states. "I want to probe senior Administration officials across the government who have abused their positions of power and wasted taxpayer money, as well as President Trump's decisions to act in his own financial self-interest rather than the best interests of the American people".

But historical precedent suggests that an aggressive strategy targeting the president may backfire come 2020. Sen.

Whether or not the night constitutes a "blue wave" for Democrats is unclear given the mixed results overall and the typical losses for the president's party, but the split Congress will make life more hard for the president.

Of the women challenging for a new seat, one-third were successful. Progressives will nearly certainly clamour for Trump's impeachment - a push that Democratic leaders have indicated that they will resist, at least until Mueller releases his findings.

McConnell eschewed further attempts to get him to respond to heated presidential rhetoric, refusing to call the migrant caravan - still hundreds of miles from the southern US border - a "crisis", as Trump did in high profile campaign rallies created to turn out the GOP base.

It could have been a much bigger night for Democrats, who suffered stinging losses in OH and in Florida, where Trump-backed Republican Ron DeSantis ended Democrat Andrew Gillum's bid to become the state's first African-American governor.

"I plan to shine a light on waste, fraud and abuse in the Trump administration", Cummings said Wednesday. And it doesn't even mean they weren't really important issues for many - even most - of those who voted for Trump.

"I am extremely happy with the economy", Gerlock said as he cast his ballot in Chicago.

The president bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation.

The results, Trump argued, were proof of his ability to turn out voters. Both Barack Obama's and Bill Clinton's numbers were 5 points higher, and both suffered major midterm losses of 63 and 54 House seats respectively. Some others played outsized roles in their parties' campaigns, though not as candidates, and were reluctant to telegraph their 2020 intentions before the 2018 fight was decided. They included New Jersey Sen.
