Midterms serve as practice run for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign

For example, Cummings and other Democratic lawmakers previous year filed a federal lawsuit demanding disclosures of records to determine how Trump was approved by the General Services Administration to maintain the lease of the Trump International Hotel in Washington after he became president.

Read the New York Times article here. But they were hammered in Senate races in rural states, losing seats in Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota. But they also cost his party in suburban races that decided the outcome of the House, contributing to the split-decision Trump received from voters.

CNN's Jim Acosta was repeatedly admonished by Trump as a rude person who should not be working for the network, and he was accused of treating White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and others in a terrible manner.

Numerous winning candidates campaigned on the need for better health care for all Americans. We I expect several Democrats to announce they're forming exploratory committees in the next few weeks.

He tweeted: "To any of the pundits or talking heads that do not give us proper credit for this great Midterm Election, just remember two words - FAKE NEWS!" The party has pledged to check the president's power and start a slew of investigations on matters including his tax returns, Russian involvement in the 2016 election and actions by his administration.

Yet Mr Trump's party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least. And when PBS Newshour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked him if he thought his rhetoric emboldened white nationalists he called it "such a racist question". The current congresswoman beat her opponent, Billie Sutton, by four points. 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.

Not a politician famous for being able to take criticism, Trump can be expected to respond blow for blow.

Trump faces the prospect, starting early next year, of endless investigations after Democrats formally take control of the House, along with stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition.

Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin in West Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin won re-election. The Justice Department dropped the charges after his trial ended in an hung jury. If Pelosi moves forward with her bid for speaker, those 20 members will have to ask themselves whether they want to make her vulnerable to a challenge on the House floor, leaving Democrats squabbling just when they've gotten the majority back after almost a decade in the wilderness. That changed on Tuesday, when these two women defeated Republican incumbents.

In Florida, six House seats are in play, and there are close and crucial battles for a Senate seat and the governorship.

Moments later he reversed his typically antagonistic tone toward Democrat Nancy Pelosi, who is in line to return as House speaker after Democrats won the chamber's majority in Tuesday's midterm elections. He and the first lady were to host an evening watch party for family and friends. But his message also appeared to alienate well-educated voters - especially women - in the suburbs.

"Indeed it is a good morning for Senate Republicans", the Kentucky Republicans told reporters. Democrats are relying more upon women, people of colour, young people and college graduates.

The Democratic sweep should end an era of highly charged partisan discord that was dominated by outgoing Republican Gov. Paul LePage and his prolific use of the veto.

Democrats faced a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they were nearly exclusively on defence in rural states where Trump remains popular. That means about 57 percent of the total votes cast went for Senate Democrats.

"They can play that game, but we can play better because we have a thing called the United States Senate, and a lot of questionable things were done between leaks of classified information and many other elements that should not have taken place", Trump said during the almost 90-minute session with reporters in the White House East Room.

Democrats boasted record diversity on ballots. All three states are key presidential battlegrounds.

In the Senate, where 35 of the 100 seats were in play (and just 9 were Republican seats up for grabs), the Republicans have made at least 3 gains.
