Democrats reclaim US House

Democrats reclaim US House

More Democratic House members could bolster Straus allies as they woo more conservative colleagues, saying the House needs a speaker who will stand up to Abbott and Patrick.

That wide difference in Trump's national vs. his key state approval helps explain the dual storyline emerging on election night of Democratic pickups giving them control of the US House and Republican success holding control of the US Senate by picking off Democratic senators representing states Trump won in 2016.

Trump had noted the energy as he wrapped up a punishing schedule of rallies around the country that were meant to boost Republican candidates - and his own brand heading towards reelection in 2020.

Republicans expanded their Senate majority while losing control of the House of Representatives Tuesday, limiting President Donald Trump's options for pursuing a pro-life agenda for the remainder of his first term.

The Republican incumbent had been branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats in a race that pointed to Trump's unpopularity among college-educated women in the suburbs. That leaves a shrunken core dominated by conservatives from rural areas whose constituents overwhelmingly support Trump. Should the GOP retain control of the Senate, they could arguably put a check on House Democrats' spending priorities.

"Mr. President, you have underestimated the strength of America's better angels", Cuomo said to cheers. He knows that he remains without question the most popular figure in his party.

"They want to raise your taxes, the Democrats do, restore crippling regulations, shut down your new steel mills, take away your health care, and put illegal aliens before American citizens", Trump said in a closing rally in IN on Monday.

In suburban areas where key House races were decided, voters skewed significantly toward Democrats by a almost 10-point margin.

Two bright spots for Democrats: In Colorado, Jared Polis's win will make the outgoing congressman the first openly gay governor in United States history.

Republicans, who were optimistic about keeping their majority in the Senate, told voters that Democrats would block Mr Trump's agenda while allowing undocumented immigrants and liberal "mobs" to overtake their communities. "He hasn't shown any inclination to do that, but it will be interesting to see if this is a moment he will want to govern rather than just make points". Democrats flipped seats in suburban districts outside of Washington, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago and Denver.

The party already faced challenges in trying to grow beyond its base of middle-class Trump supporters, white men, and evangelicals.

That will nearly certainly continue if a shrinking congressional caucus paves the way for greater fealty to Trump. Republicans are projected to keep at least 50 seats in the 100-member US Senate, which gives them control as Vice President Mike Pence will be the tiebreaker.

The Republican majority will leave town with Obamacare still the law of the land and with a deficit going through the roof on the back of GOP tax cuts. Democratic incumbents also prevailed in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, Midwestern states that Trump carried narrowly two years ago.

In September alone, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, called for the panel to issue subpoenas to the Trump administration on seven different investigations, ranging from immigration to Obamacare.

In the last two decades there have only three election cycles where one party picked up 24 or more seats.

In south Florida, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

In the final stretch, Trump hardened his rhetoric on issues that appealed to his conservative core supporters, issuing warnings about a caravan of Latin American migrants headed to the border with Mexico and condemnations of what he called USA liberal "mobs".

Several Republican candidates and advocacy groups such as the Congressional Leadership Fund joined in, concluding that the party's economic message was not resonating.

Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a 2016 Democratic presidential contender, and Tim Kaine of Virginia, Hillary Clinton's vice presidential nominee in 2016, easily won re-election.
