  • Governors' Races: Scott Walker Loses In Wisconsin; Kris Kobach Loses In Kansas

Kevin Benson, a 38-year-old graphic designer from Westerville in central OH, said he's registered a Republican, considers himself an independent, and voted all Democrat on his polling place on Tuesday, mostly because of Trump. And Republicans are projected to continue to hold power in the 2020 presidential battlegrounds of Florida and Ohio.

The losses tempered big Democratic victories in governor races in two states, MI and Kansas, that voted for Republican President Donald Trump in 2016, bolstering the party's hopes of recapturing those states in the 2020 presidential election.

Some of the biggest wins for Democrats came in the Midwest, where Republicans had virtually wiped them out in prior elections.

Democratic candidates won 221 seats, three more than the 218 they need for a majority in the 435-member chamber, while Republicans took 198 seats in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Two of Ohio's winningest politicians did it again Tuesday, as Republican Mike DeWine won the governorship and Democratic Sen.

Accusations of race-baiting dogged Kemp, 55, and DeSantis, 40, who denied the allegations.

Likewise, Democrats hope their victories signal a resurgence for their party in America's heartland, where President Donald Trump romped in 2016.

The contests for governor in Florida and Georgia - in which liberal black Democrats faced off against white Republicans strongly supported by Trump - had not been resolved by 11 p.m. EST (0400 GMT).

The Democratic gains amount to a mere "ripple" in Republican legislative control, said Matt Walter, president of the Republican State Leadership Committee. J.B. Pritzker is projected to topple Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in IL - one of the nation's least popular governors - after spending more than $170 million of his Hyatt hotel fortune on the contest.

A short-term investment to stem the superbug tide would save lives and money in the long run, the report notes. The problem of resistance is growing even more rapidly in low- and middle-income countries.

Cordray, a 59-year-old former OH state treasurer and attorney general, returned to his home state after a stint as the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau - a position to which he was appointed by former President Barack Obama.

Democrats Andrew Cuomo in NY and Tom Wolf in Pennsylvania easily won re-election, as did two Republicans in Democratic-leaning states - Larry Hogan in Maryland and Charlie Baker in MA.

The outcome of elections for state positions could also affect future control of the US House of Representatives. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a former Republican presidential candidate and Trump ally, was seeking a third term in a race that remained too close to call. Republicans then used that enhanced power in many states to redraw legislative districts to their favor after the 2010 Census.

Yet even after Tuesday's victories, Democrats still will have full control of the governor's office and legislature in about one-third fewer states than Republicans.

Voters in Colorado, Michigan and Missouri approved ballot measures overhauling the redistricting process in ways that are meant to reduce the likelihood of partisan gerrymandering by either major party.

As of mid-October, the Democratic Governors Association and its affiliated entities had raised $122 million during the past two years - a record outdone only by the Republican Governors Association's new high mark of at least $156 million.

"I want to encourage you not to give up", Gillum, the 39-year-old mayor of Tallahassee, told supporters at his election night party, where small groups of people embraced, tears streaming down their faces.

She will also bring to the state capitol Michigan's first African American lieutentant governor, Garlin Gilchrist II, a Detroit-born activist, who served as a social media manager for President Obama's campaign in 2008.

Although most state lawmakers responsible for redistricting will be elected in 2020, voters on Tuesday were electing more than 800 state lawmakers in about two dozen states to four-year terms where they could play a role in approving new congressional or state legislative districts.
