Flip this House! Dems take control

Unless House Republicans can pressure enough moderate Democrats to vote with them, pro-life policy gains will again be limited to whatever changes to existing federal rules and regulations can be done by executive orders or directives to federal agencies.

President Donald Trump has had an "incredible night" with many wins, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday night, and the White House feels good about the results that are coming in.

Maybe the "blue wave" turned out to be a "blue ripple", Seth Meyers said on Late Night, "but hey, if you've been in the desert for two years, a little splash of water feels like a damn tsunami".

As for Republicans retaining control of the Senate, she called it "a huge moment and victory for the president".

Democrats swept the other statewide offices, with Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul elected on a ticket with Cuomo, and New York City Public Advocate Tish James headed for a win for attorney general against Republican Keith Wofford.

"I don't think there's anything wrong with Donnelly, but he's been on both sides of the fence", said Allan. Jensen says she called Danielson to congratulate her on her victory for the open seat.

Since 1946, the president's party has lost an average of 25 House seats in midterm elections, according to Gallup.

Democrats will pick up at least six and perhaps as many as 11 seats in the 150-member Texas House.

Trump previously claimed responsibility for the outcome of the midterm elections, with a White House statement saying the he gave voters a "clear choice".

Almost 4 in 10 said they were casting ballots to express opposition to him, while just 1 in 4 said their vote was an expression of support for the president.

Despite the win for the Democrats in the House, the Republicans far outperformed expectations in Senate races, which will likely vindicate President Trump in his campaign strategy that emphasized the security threat of illegal immigration. Still, Republican voters tended to be overwhelmingly supportive of the president.

The campaign unfolded against a backdrop of heated rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president.

Republicans had expected the Republican tax plan would be the cornerstone of their election agenda this year, but it became a potential liability in key states along the East and West coasts where residents could face higher tax bills because of limits on property and sales tax deductions.

The loss of the House is a serious blow to Trump who must now brace for the novel experience of oversight from Capitol Hill with Democratic committee chairmen promising constraints on his power that the GOP never attempted. Democratic incumbents also prevailed in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, Midwestern states that Trump carried narrowly two years ago.

The road to a House majority ran through two dozen suburban districts Hillary Clinton won in 2016. In the final days, he sought to motivate supporters with the battle over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

GOP Whip Steve Scalise said the president's rallies were building momentum, and with the economy a selling point, he predicted his party would retain a slim majority. Trump's 53% approval in IN underperforms his more than 57% support there in 2016.

The verdicts in the House and Senate were based on incomplete results as vote counting continued across the country and some states were still voting in a congressional election cast as an unofficial referendum on Trump.
