President Donald Trump says Democrats have 'nothing, zero' on him

Pa. N.J. congressional election results Democrats gain four seats in Philly region

Though Democrats will have a majority in the House, Neal said he was mindful of the reality that Republicans still control the Senate and Trump has a presidential veto.

This year, women not only increased their numbers, but the new class of lawmakers also includes women from a wide patchwork of backgrounds, adding to a Congress that is expected to be more diverse.

Even though the mainstream will tell you the opposite, to a great degree, Trump is better placed for a reelection than before this midterm. "Thank to you all!" even though his party just lost control of the House.

Americans elected the first Muslim and Native American women among a record 110 women projected to join Congress. A new generation of Democratic representatives, propelled by resurgent activism, is heading to the halls of Congress.

Responding to the anti-Semitic rhetoric that emerged in the closing days of the campaign, Rosen called her win was a "counterpoint" to the hate promoted by a president like Trump.

There was a revolt in the suburbs Tuesday against the GOP, and the political upheaval now threatens what's left of Trump's agenda. In West Virginia, voters turned their back on Trump and re-elected Democratic Sen. "It's about our country".

Indeed, both presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama survived worse midterm results in their first terms to be comfortably re-elected two years later.

New York Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks to supporters, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018 in Queens, New York, after defeating Republican challenger Anthony Pappas in the race for the 14th Congressional district. Activists bypassed Pelosi's vast party apparatus, which shoveled $129 million to the Democratic campaign committee, and instead rewarded candidates through online donations and social media promotion. "Make it the speaker's problem, make her deal with the nutty wing of her party".

"I don't think anyone deserves anything", Mrs. Pelosi said in response to the president's comments.

Schiller said, "Everything about the rules of the game, about achieving power, has changed out from under her".

Ms Pelosi comes from the old school of politics, taught by her father, the former mayor of Baltimore, and her mother, who ran a tight Italian-American household. Constituents would show up at her family's door, needing favors from her dad, who kept a file card system of requests asked and answered, a first lesson in the value of chits.

A record number of women were elected to the House on Tuesday, almost two years after women spilled out into the streets of Washington and in cities across the country in defiance of the inauguration of President Donald Trump. On one hand, his tireless campaigning and the intensity of his support contributed to an outcome far less damaging to his administration than it might have been. If she returns as leader, it's easy to imagine Pelosi courting Trump's support on shared priorities ahead of the 2020 election, like a big infrastructure package or lower prescription drug prices that eluded past presidents - the kind of bipartisanship voters say they want from Washington.

The Democratic House is only part of what Trump faces in the coming year.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who is expected to become head of the House Intelligence Committee, said they will give full support to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. Top-ranking leaders Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn are also in their mid-70s.

FreedomWorks - the group I head - created the Regulatory Action Center (RAC) to fight back against this unchecked fourth branch of government.

Pelosi has led the Democrats in the House since 2003, and is the favorite to be elected during the next congressional session, so long as she receives votes from a majority of House members.

Indeed, Representative Jerrold Nadler of NY, likely to become House Judiciary Chair in the new Congress, has suggested he would even use his new subpoena power to initiate an impeachment investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, recently confirmed after a nasty Senate battle over allegations of sexual misconduct when he was a teenager.
