Midterm elections: Donald Trump responds to House and Senate results

Democrats Win First Two Republican Held Seats In US Midterms

Democrats Win First Two Republican Held Seats In US Midterms

NBC, ABC News and CNN projected Democrats would take control of the chamber even as the outcome in number of competitive races remains unclear.

Republicans still had advantages in some areas, giving them hope of retaining a slim majority. "They can now open investigations into the president, and we'll finally find out if Donald Trump has ever done anything unethical".

Trump spent the day at the White House, tweeting, making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team. The GOP is poised to enlarge its majority by at least two seats.

And in the Senate, triumphant Republicans retained control, ousting Democratic incumbents in IN and North Dakota and ensuring they will remain as guardians of Trump's conservative agenda for two more years.

Democrats captured the House on Tuesday as Americans stampeded to the polls for a historic midterm that was as much a referendum on President Trump's policies and behavior as it was about control of Congress.

Overall, women voted considerably more in favor of congressional Democratic candidates - with fewer than 4 in 10 voting for Republicans, according to VoteCast, a nationwide survey of more than 115,000 voters and about 20,000 nonvoters - conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago. Her deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill told reporters that Trump also acknowledged Pelosi's call for bipartisanship in her victory remarks.

Early vote data released early Tuesday indicated that the electorate was younger and more diverse than in the last midterm election. "I think the Senate, we're doing very well, and I think we're going to do very well in the House", he predicted.

Democratic energy, fueled by opposition to Trump in these largely suburban districts took down incumbents often touted as among the most formidable in the GOP conference, including Colorado Rep.

They focused on recruiting diverse candidates that might have once seemed outside the box for the party.

Democrats won contested House races in Florida and Virginia, while a Republican beat back an aggressive challenge in Kentucky. Hillary Clinton's 2016 loss to Mr. Trump, coupled with the GOP's ability to retain control of Congress that year, also stunned the Democratic faithful.

She declared: "Tomorrow will be a new day in America". Democrats need Pelosi's experience in the Trump era, she said.

Democrats, meanwhile, prioritized a different message in the midterms and heavily emphasized promises to safeguard health care for voters, including protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions.

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. Many moderate members chose to retire rather than face tough re-election campaigns. In Whatcom County's 42nd, District, GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who heads the Senate GOP's campaign committee, said in an interview. Jordan, often seen as a conservative agitator in the House, is considered a long shot for a leadership post.

With control of Congress and statehouses across the nation at stake, numerous nation's top elections were too close to call. Democrats who picked up Republican-held seats included Donna Shalala, a former Cabinet secretary under President Bill Clinton, in Florida. "And no one should be surprised if they win 51 seats".

Some of the biggest Democratic stars of the campaign season were struggling. For example, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota could stump on protecting farmers while Joe Manchin in West Virginia promised new health protections for coal miners.

Democrats turned out in droves to register disapproval of his policies on such issues as immigration and his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries. In the final days, he sought to motivate supporters with the battle over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh - at one point mocking a woman who claimed the judge had sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.

In Indiana, Trump-backed businessman Mike Braun defeated Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly. In Kansas, Republican Kris Kobach, a Trump ally who was a leader of the president's disbanded voter fraud commission, fell to Democratic state senator Laura Kelly.

Democratic control of the House will nearly certainly lead to an onslaught of investigations of Trump's businesses and his administration.

Democrats benefited from a flood of donations to official party organizations and outside groups working on their side. Republican candidates and their backers are on track to spend $2.2 billion. And, Carns argued, the national political environment has shifted since August.
