Mr Trump told the rally crowd in Macon, Georgia.

Democratic candidates buoyed by widespread opposition to Donald Trump seized the balance of power on Capitol Hill, but Tuesday's US midterm elections failed to produce what critics had hoped would be an even more scolding rebuke of the most controversial and divisive president of the modern era.

Curbelo, a moderate and critic of President Donald Trump, was trying to defy the political winds against Trump. Democrats are also interested in Trump's tax returns, which he has declined to make public. "Two can play that game!"

She stressed the president's efforts to mobilize GOP voters in a ground game aimed at "defying midterm history".

Democratic control of the House would break the GOP's monopoly on power in Washington and would nearly certainly lead to an onslaught of investigations of Trump's businesses and his administration.

"If they want to impeach President Trump, I would give them some advice: I've been there, done that with (Bill) Clinton, and it didn't work out well for us", Graham said.

"Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!" he added.

Trump was expected to address the results in greater detail at a White House news conference later Wednesday.

Congressional Black Caucus members have said that they might challenge Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) but Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), who typically challenges Pelosi, said he will not run for Speaker. "She has earned this great honor!"

Two issues more than any others were on voters' minds: 25 percent described health care and immigration as the most important issues in the election.

The party drew blood in IN, ousting one-term Democrat Joe Donnelly in a state that had been seen as a must-win for Democrats seeking to gain control of the upper chamber.

Mr Trump has dropped hints that the Democrats could take the House, saying a number of times that there were too many candidates for him to campaign with personally - a possible excuse if things do not go his way.

In those 10 Trump-won states, Democratic Sen.

47 killed in Zimbabwe bus crash
Traffic accidents are common in Zimbabwe, where years of underfunding and neglect have left roads riddled with potholes. In July 2015, eight passengers died and 53 others were injured when a tyre burst, causing the bus to overturn.

In the three races he targeted on the final day, Trump's picks won Tuesday night, with Republican Mike Braun defeating Democratic Sen.

Meanwhile, Republicans Mike Braun and Kevin Cramer won Democratic-held Senate seats in IN and North Dakota, ousting incumbents Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp. And only twice in the past eight decades has the president's party picked up House seats in the midterms.

Trump spent Tuesday at the White House, tweeting, making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team.

Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump.

This year there are a record number of women on the ballot, which could significantly increase the number of women in elected office from a fifth of the 535 seats across both chambers.

He seized on scenes of a caravan of Central American migrants heading through Mexico for the USA, mused on ending the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to all people born in the United States and ran a television advertisement, deemed too provocative to air by mainstream networks, that linked Democrats to a criminal who was an undocumented immigrant.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.

Republicans have retained Senate control for two more years.

The results were more mixed deeper into Trump country. He served as vice chairman of Trump's now-defunct commission on voter fraud. But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness.

"Even though I'm not on the ballot, in a certain way I am on the ballot", Mr Trump said during a tele-town hall meeting organised by his re-election campaign on Monday to encourage Republicans to get out and vote.

Trump's scorched-earth campaigning came to define the 2018 campaign. Manchin, who voted with Republicans to confirm Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, attacked Morrisey's past lobbying ties to the pharmaceutical industry in a state battered by the opioid crisis.

As for the Senate race, despite Trump's deeply polarizing effect on voters, the GOP harnessed his rock-solid popularity with hard-right voters in rural, deep-red states.
