Donald Trump Midterms Morning-After Tweetstorm: Make Nancy Pelosi House Speaker

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

The Kremlin says the results of Tuesday's midterm elections are not going to hurt ties between Russian Federation and the USA because they are bad as it is.

Hua says China looks forward to a meeting between Trump and President Xi Jinping later this month at a G-20 summit in Argentina.

Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern" and of preventing other reporters from asking questions at the news conference.

The president was entitled to a partial victory lap.

Republican businessman Mike Braun also beat the Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly in the battleground state of in. where Trump won by 20 percentage points back in 2016. He rallied in these red states and brought out the reddest of votes.

The fear, it seems, does motivate Republicans. In these specific cases, Trump could claim his intervention in the endgame was the GOP's not-so-secret weapon and deciding factor.

The hotly contested race in Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams was seeking to become the first black woman to be elected governor of a US state, remained too close to call early on Wednesday. Ted Cruz from an untimely political demise in his Texas re-election.

Most Democratic candidates in tight races stayed away from harsh criticism of Trump during the midterm campaign's final stretch, focusing instead on bread-and-butter issues like maintaining insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions, and safeguarding the Social Security retirement and Medicare healthcare programs for senior citizens. Bill Nelson loses his recount in Florida. Who is this man and what have they done with the actual Donald Trump?

In gaining control of the lower chamber, Democrats will head up the committees and gain subpoena power.

According to local news outlets, this is the second time this year the high school has had reports of a gun-related incident. Parents and students are gathering at a Lowe's Foods across the street, WECT reports.

President Donald Trump needled Nancy Pelosi on Twitter Wednesday morning following the Democrats regaining control of the House of Representatives, saying she deserved to the next speaker of the House and could help gain Republican votes.

The Democrats had to win by at least that much to take the majority, because in more than a few states, their candidates had to overcome not only their opponents, but also the district lines within which they had to run. It's hard to find that many solid opportunities on the 2020 map.

Republicans will still be in control of the US Senate in January, as they were able to hold their majority of seats in the election. The Senate is the upper house and sits for a six-year term, which means that Senators can deliberate over long-term legislation and its effects.

"You've probably heard that over the eight years Barack Obama was president, Democrats lost a net of nearly a thousand seats in state legislatures", Waldman wrote. Kobach, a strong Trump ally, lost his race Tuesday to Democrat Laura Kelly. The second is to try and push for as many concrete solutions to its chief concerns - Iran, Syria and the Palestinians - while Trump remains in the White House. Voter participation rates jumped by around 10 points in both states. But Democrat Christine Hallquist lost her bid to become the first openly transgender USA governor in Vermont, where Republican incumbent Phil Scott won re-election.

Nationwide, the Democrats won close to two-thirds of all the Senate races and garnered 57% of the nationwide vote for that office.

Every seat in the House was up for grabs on Tuesday. Just as in 2016, the polls were badly wrong in a number of states, particularly in and Florida, where Democrats lost tough races they were predicted to win. The Republicans captured the statehouse in Alaska, where it had been held by an Independent. DeSantis beat Andrew Gillum, despite a boatload of celebrity endorsements for Gillum. In Georgia, their candidate, Stacey Abrams, pointed to missing votes and allegations of voter suppression in refusing to concede.

Her office hasn't provided an more precise explanation.

While this would be incendiary in many parts of the country, it may not be the worst thing that could happen to Trump in the wake of the election results and the GOP loss of the House.

The House majority will be narrow, and some tension surrounds its choice of a speaker and other officers. Nor are Democrats likely to craft a governing coalition so long as they cleave to the country's increasingly discredited elites. They will resist Senate attempts to enact more of the president's legislative agenda, with the possible exception of higher infrastructure spending.
