Another article in The Atlantic entitled 'America, Now More Divided Than (Almost) Ever' said that "in a country where the Republicans have won the popular vote only once in the past 25 years of presidential elections, Tuesday's results are in part a picture of how much power is tilted away from Democrats structurally".

Republicans' silence on the issue "speaks to an administration run amok and a Republican majority willing to turn a blind eye to gross misconduct", Judiciary Committee Democrats said in a report earlier this year.

The final week of rallies does appear to have paid off, with Republicans winning governor races in Florida and OH and Senate seats in Missouri, Tennessee and Indiana.

In the House, Democrats will hold at least 222 seats to Republicans' 196. Beto O'Rourke's Democratic campaign for Senate in Texas fell short by less than 3 percentage points in Texas, a GOP-heavy state that hasn't elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994.

Republicans in Arizona celebrated the Senate remaining in their hands. Republicans gained a majority in the Senate two years later and held onto it by one seat in 2016. Today, his chances for re-election look much more hard than they did just a few months ago. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is the front-runner for the job. So this was a five-point decline from what was already a low 2016 number. Meanwhile, New York Democrat Max Rose's upset win over Rep.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the GOP leader who will have to forge a partnership with Mrs. Pelosi, said they worked together when they were both senior members of foreign operations appropriations subcommittees in their respective chambers. Libby said Democrats would use their newfound power to focus on pocketbook issues, including property taxes, the cost of prescription drugs and student debt relief.

"John Faso. Those are some of the people that decided for their own reason not to embrace, whether it's me or what we stand for", Trump said. He said the era of a state government that is in constant partisan gridlock or dysfunction because of a combative and often hostile governor was about to come to a close. "I wasn't", Trump said in the news conference. "I expect that is going to change in a big way with the new administration".

Elijah Cummings, now the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, also has a wish list of probes, including Mr Trump's apparent interference in a plan to build a new headquarters for the Federal Bureau of Investigation; drug pricing under the Trump administration; and the mishandling of the deadly 2017 hurricane disaster in Puerto Rico. 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.

"I think we are excited, but we also feel there is a major responsibility to deliver on the promises we made", Libby said.

On Wednesday, Democratic Sen.

Of course, it's good when good women win - as in NY with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and MI with Rashida Tlaib - but just because somebody is an ex-military martial arts black-belt lesbian (I'm not making that up) doesn't mean, well, you get my point... "And you can be damn sure that is what we intend to do in the ME state Senate".

His back-and-forth with CNN reporter Jim Acosta over Trump's hard-line immigration rhetoric grew especially heated, with Trump labeling the reporter a "very rude person" and saying the outlet "should be ashamed of itself" for employing him.

She said priorities would include expanding Medicaid, taking additional action to stem the state's ongoing opioid overdose crisis - which Gideon called a "public health emergency" - expanding the state's renewable energy policies, and addressing workforce development and student debt, among other key issues. Democrats picked up suburban districts they lost in 2010 after going all-in on ObamaCare that year; Republicans didn't make any gains outside of red states except Florida, and didn't even convert in Montana or West Virginia. "I'm voting for candidates that I believe have the capacity to unite people rather than divide". Or you could say, "Look, if you run as a genuine, charismatic progressive, you can't beat Ted Cruz, and maybe a different candidate could have". "Please hold that trust sacred".

When one questioner - Cordelia Lynch of Britain's Sky News - prefaced a question with the assertion that the results were "not an absolute victory" for Trump, he cut her off to insist that "I'll be honest: I thought it was a very-close-to-complete victory".
