  • Democratic state gains may mean tighter gun looser pot laws

Come January, Democrats will once again be in control of the U.S. House. On Wednesday, a consensus among media outlets emerged that vote tallies had sealed a victory for Democratic candidate Josh Harder in California's 10th congressional district over Republican incumbent Jeff Denham.

That means, more than a week after Election Day, Democrats have increased their House gains to a net of 33 seats - and, when all the vote is counted, they may get to 39.

Make no mistake: That is a very big wave.

President Donald Trump promptly reacted to the decision, likely to drag on the highly-polarized race, by tweeting that some - the Democrats, apparently - have been "trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida!" President Richard Nixon resigned in August 1974, leading to Democrats' pickup of 49 seats that fall.

He does, however, think there will be several investigations once Democrats take over the House and its committees. What's more, this cycle's seats are far more gerrymandered to favor Republicans than those were. Florida has also ordered a recount for its gubernatorial race, while the victor of the governor's race in Georgia remained uncertain, with a December runoff still possible.
