At press time, the Democrats had achieved a net gain of 27 seats in the House, above the 23 needed to secure a majority.

President Donald Trump fired a parting shot at GOP Congresswoman Mia Love, who's facing an uphill re-election battle in Utah's 4th District, as he discussed midterm results on Tuesday and the House loss to Democrats.

Democrat Ayanna Pressley became Massachusetts' first Black U.S. representative. It was a role reversal from just days ago, when he warned voters of her "radical" agenda.

Simply put, if Republicans swept every Senate seat in the states President Trump won and Democrats won every Senate seat in the states Hillary Clinton won, the GOP would have a filibuster-proof 60 votes in the Senate. "Obviously, I think that we had to wait until the midterms were over".

Yet ascent of the California Democrat is nowhere near guaranteed. Davids will also be Kansas' first openly LGBTQ member of Congress.

But given that the popular vote does not translate to an electoral college victory, the results should offer some good news for those hoping that Donald Trump is one-term president.

But the Democrats have now taken control of the House, after millions of Americans cast their votes in the midterm elections on Tuesday.

The two have reasons to cooperate. However, these states won't decide the 2020 presidential election. They talked on election night about doing an infrastructure package and lowering health care costs, particularly around prescription drugs, priorities for both sides.

Said Tom Shields, a Republican political consultant and president of Lansing-based Marketing Resource Group Inc. said Whitmer "didn't do anything to upset the wave and stop it from coming". "The fact is we'd like to work together".

Representative Seth Moulton of Salem is about to get some serious reinforcements to his troop of Democrats who want to end Nancy Pelosi's 15-year reign as the leader of House Democrats. But becoming speaker requires a majority of the full House, 218 votes, and her slim majority - now at 222 - leaves her little cushion.

According to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, Democrats captured 323 Republican-held legislative seats across the country. Each is poised to move up a slot.

Gideon, who has served in the Legislature only during LePage's tenure as governor, said she was finding it "really hard to even imagine" what it will be like under a governor who wants to work collaboratively with lawmakers.

Overall, compared to 2016, Trump's position seems neither significantly to have eroded nor significantly to have improved in the states that are likely to decide the 2020 election. "Ya es tiempo de un cambio!" he echoed his statement in Spanish.

In Michigan, incumbent Democrat Sen. "It's going to be a great night for America".

Three others announced their runs for assistant leader, the new No. 4 post, including Rep. An aggressive campaign to define and demonize new congressional committee leaders.

How did the women challengers go? Those that did not, say goodbye!

One particular item Pelosi has said she intends to obtain and release to the public? Who the Democrats ultimately nominate will naturally have tremendous implications for whether this week's results can be replicated in two years.

Fallout on the Republican side of the aisle is just as complicated, with Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California facing a challenge from conservative Rep. Jim Jordan of OH for the top spot in their shrunken ranks.

"Thanks to Stacey Abrams, Andrew Gillum and Beto O'Rourke, places where Democrats have had trouble winning for years became unpredictable toss-ups in large part because of an electorate inspired by never-before-heard bold visions for economic and racial justice", Green said.

As a candidate, she said, "we weren't trying to fit into a specific mold". Some of those, like Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, have said they would not vote for Pelosi for speaker. "It's what you can do".

Blackburn said in her victory speech, "Now you don't have to worry if you are going to call me congressman or congresswoman or congress lady".
