Donald Trump claims victory in midterms despite losing House control

Democrats, whose very relevance in the Trump era depended on winning at least one chamber of Congress, were laser-focused on health care as they predicted victories that would break up the GOP's monopoly in Washington and state governments.

For Trump, the evening unfolded at a watch party in the White House residence, where the East Room and the State Dining Room were set up with large-screen TVs.

Libby said Democrats already were beginning to start conversations about how they would make good on their promises.

Republican incumbent Andy Barr fended off a strong challenged from Democrat Amy McGrath, a Naval Academy graduate and the first female U.S. Marine to pilot an F/A-18 Hornet in combat, in Kentucky's 6th Congressional District.

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

Noem was one of the most notable Republican women seeking higher office in the midterms, an election year characterized more by a historic gender gap in favor of the Democrats. Political gridlock between the White House and Congress could hinder Trump's pro-business agenda and raise concerns about United States political instability, but investors may have already priced this in. "I think people like the job I'm doing". Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature.

The result upends the balance of power in Washington, where Trump has enjoyed an easy ride from Republican dominance of both houses of Congress since his shock election in 2016.

Former vice president Joe Biden, often touted as a possible Democratic candidate to take on Trump in 2020, said he'd have been "dumbfounded" not to win the House.

He also said the politicians who lost their seats probably did so because they did not embrace his policies and principles. "The president has energized a staggering number of Americans at packed arenas and in overflow crowds at rallies across the country". At times he even appeared at odds with his own campaign, which in the election's final days released a gauzy ad aimed at suburban women.

Yesterday, voters in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania backed Democratic candidates for both governor and the Senate. Maybe that's what inspired some in the White House press corps to try to seize leadership of The Resistance. He was active on Twitter throughout much of the day, blasting out endorsements for Republican candidates and weighing in on the balloting.

He was not made available to reporters after the game but told reporters last week: " I didn't want to feel like a victim . Fans cheered again when Jones fought for a loose ball and got fouled to reach the free throw line for his first point.

Sanders argued that O'Rourke and Gillum, who ran as unabashed progressives and narrowly lost, offered a blueprint for Democrats on how to win in conservative states.

A majority-Democrat House threatens to stymie Trump's agenda and could lead to the investigation of his administration. Republicans in this midterm benefited from having only nine seats up for grabs in the senate, compared to 26 for Democrats and the Independents who caucus with them.

Trump reiterated that Pelosi "deserves" the speakership, calling her a "capable person" who has "fought long and hard".

"These are things we can accomplish with the support and collaboration of our Republican colleagues", Libby said.

A renewed investigation could serve Kremlin interests by deepening division in America's political arena. "We believe that the economy should work for everyone, not just those at the top", Perez said. The attempt failed, but those 11 members represent a contingent of lawmakers who want to see new leadership. The survey is separate from the traditional exit polls for the television networks. The Republican-controlled 115th Congress has only sent a small handful of noncontroversial drug pricing measures to President Trump for a signature.

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

"I'm not looking at this as revenge", the Lowell Democrat said.

"I think Mainers sent a pretty clear message in that they want a change in how our state is run", Sen.

"Keeping the Senate will allow the Republicans to maintain control over nominations".

Florida did what it always does, delivering races as close as any in the country.
