  • Democrats win House, Republicans keep Senate

According to data compiled by The Associated Press, 237 women ran for the House as major-party candidates this year.

There are still some seats undecided in this week's vote, but to date, 117 women have won across the Senate, House and Governor elections.

Democrats won ... seats in elections to the 435-strong House of Representatives, whose members are proportional to the population of states, reflecting the will and sentiment of the people in numerical terms. Progressives will nearly certainly clamour for Trump's impeachment - a push that Democratic leaders have indicated that they will resist, at least until Mueller releases his findings.

Taking credit for gains in the Senate while minimizing losses in the House, Trump said Republicans "defied history". Bill Nelson, D-Fla. will be the second Democrat to lose his Finance committee seat if he fails to overtake incumbent Gov. Rick Scott in a potential Florida Senate recount.

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 U.S. President Donald Trump.

Beyond that, LePage made the Legislature's work more hard by often refusing to allow members of his Cabinet or other top administration officials to provide testimony to legislative committees. "I'm not so sure it will work for them".

Said Warren: "This resistance began with women and it is being led by women tonight".

Democratic leaders plan to satisfy those demands by using their newfound majority to push through long-stalled initiatives that they say have broad support within the electorate. "Because we have a thing called the United States Senate", Trump said.

The president's party will maintain control of the executive branch of the government, in addition to the Senate.

Of course, the question is if this is too little, too late to preserve Florida State's record streak of 36 consecutive bowl games. Known for his passing, Nembhard instead was part of a Gators team that had more turnovers (16) than assists (nine).

The result left Washington braced for the prospects of partisan warfare, with the Democrats poised take over House committees, giving them the power to hold hearings, call witnesses and issue subpoenas to administration officials.

"I think the message is, figure out what you can do together and do it", McConnell said, adding that the Affordable Care Act needs to be fixed but that any effort to fix the Obama-era law would have to be done "on a bipartisan basis". "I expect that is going to change in a big way with the new administration". This is a good sign for Democrats as both groups tend to vote for them. 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.

But control of the Senate ensures Mr Trump can still make key appointments.

The author of "A young diplomat in Trump's America" told France 24: "First of all they should think how can we respond to the fears, to the anxieties in the USA right now, from the core part of the electorate that doesn't just vote Democrat". "And you can be damn sure that is what we intend to do in the ME state Senate".

Of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation that has shadowed his administration for more than 18 months, Trump said, "I could end it right now" but "I let it go on".

"And Barbara Comstock was another one", he said.

"This doesn't mean that we go looking for a fight, but it means that if we see a need to go forward we will, but that will be the work of our committees".

"Everybody understands that we have to choose our battles very carefully now", Raskin said.

"Mainers have entrusted you with the future of our state and to represent all of the people", he said. For that, I don't blame her. "As for the market impact, a split Congress has historically been bullish for equities and we expect to see the same pattern again", said Torsten Slok, chief worldwide economist for Deutsche Bank.
