Democrats retake the House, setting up divided government

US Democrats win House, Republicans keep Senate

By 1:30 a.m. Wednesday as the votes were still being counted, 92 had already been declared winners.

Trump also called out Republicans who did not accept his offer of campaign help, saying they failed to accept his "embrace".

Numerous winning candidates campaigned on the need for better health care for all Americans.

Her office hasn't provided an more precise explanation.

First, the emergence of a strong Democrat challenger, Beto O' Rourke.

The Republicans lost the House by a comparatively small margin and gained firmer control of the Senate.

Your opinion is valuable. The Democrats also picked up seven new governorships, thus revitalising their party ahead of 2020.

Also Tuesday, transgender supporters in MA and the nation were celebrating the passage of the first-ever statewide referendum on a transgender rights law. She will enter Congress having previously worked as a lawyer and a former mixed martial arts fighter.

Paddy Power also identified another threat - impeachment.

Tlaib, 42, became the first Muslim woman elected to the Michigan Legislature in 2008.

Tlaib will fill the seat formerly occupied by Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, who left office previous year amid accusations of sexual misconduct.

Voters in Minnesota and MI elected the first two Muslim women to serve in the U.S. Congress: Ilhan Omar, a former refugee who fled Somalia's civil war, and Rashida Tlaib, a Detroit-born Palestinian-American. They must think carefully about whether to proceed with a "presidential harassment" strategy that exploits their new majority in the House to afflict Trump, he said. Republican Ron DeSantis ousted Democratic opponent Andrew Gillum by less than one percentage point in a hotly contested race in Florida; Mike DeWine won the governorship in OH; and Republican Brian Kemp was ahead of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams by 1.6 points with 100 percent of precincts reporting.

"They refused to let anyone shut them up or stand in their way, and that is how real change begins", she added.

The Republicans jumped into an early lead in this contest, with Trump's anger, fear, resentment, and unapologetic championing of American nationalism wooing enough voters to prevail in November 2016. "The electoral setup strongly favoured the Republicans in the Senate, where they were defending only 9 seats vs 25 for the Democrats (counting the two independents with the Democrats)". Blackburn will be the first female senator to represent her state.

But the rosiest expectations of some Democrats - that they could create a "blue wave" even when playing defense on the Senate map - proved unfounded. "Some close races, some races that didn't go the Republican way, midterm elections - all those things come into play". I hope you'll indulge just a smidge of horn-tooting regarding my pre-election projections: Democratic gains in the House in the ballpark of 40 seats (I specified 36 on air Monday evening), Democratic gains of roughly half-a-dozen governorships, and a net Republican gain of maybe one US Senate seat.

Sutton made a race of it, leaning into a record of public service as well as his history as a professional bronco rider, a career that left him paralyzed.

These proposals wouldn't even need to pass for Republicans to benefit and Democrats to squirm. The Democrat surged in the latter part of the year, polling neck and neck with Noem, but fell just short on Election Day.

The GOP leader sounded something of a quiet alarm on funding for the border and that 10 percent middle-class tax cut touted by Trump in the waning days of the 2018 midterms. She campaigned on keeping taxes low (South Dakota is one of a few states with no income tax), cutting government spending, and introducing more government transparency.

The campaign unfolded against a backdrop of ugly rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president. At the top of the list was funding Medicaid expansion and keeping in place a more than $160 million state boost to public school funding.

In the suburbs outside the nation's capital, Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock - among the most endangered GOP incumbents, branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats - lost to Jennifer Wexton, a prosecutor and state legislator. That is likely to remain the case under Noem. She has said that when she takes that panel's gavel, it will be "payback time" for Wall Street, banks and insurance companies.
