Divisive Trump era ushers record number of women into House

Divisive Trump era ushers record number of women into House

Fourth-generation Irishman Beto O'Rourke has built up a quite a following and is seen as the first proper contender to dethrone Cruz from his stint in a Republican stronghold.

Outside Richmond, Virginia, one-time tea party favorite Rep. Dave Brat faced an unusually strong challenge from Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative motivated to run for office after the GOP vote to gut the Affordable Care Act.

Manchin defeated Republican Patrick Morrisey, the state's attorney general. We will be at both the headquarters for Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Republican challenger Marc Molinaro.

Romney clinched the win Tuesday as he defeated Democrat Jenny Wilson, a member of the Salt Lake County council.

About a half-hour later, he gave GOP Rep. Peter King a shout-out. They were heavy favorites in their races.

Representative-elect Jennifer Wexton, a Democrat from Virginia, center, speaks during an election night rally in Dulles, Virginia, U.S., on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018.

Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez won a third Senate term in New Jersey, despite a federal bribery indictment that prosecutors dropped this year after a mistrial. The Justice Department dropped the charges after his trial ended in an hung jury.

During his final campaign rallies in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri, Mr Trump returned to his key campaign issues, insisting that Democrats would damage the economy and allow more illegal immigration.

"I think he's trying to divide this country".

"I'd love to get along and I think after the election a lot of things can happen", Trump said. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former Bernie Sanders organizer who won an upset primary victory over a senior House Democrat, will also head to Congress. Still, while Bill Clinton and the Democrats lost 54 seats to Republicans in 1994, and Barack Obama and the Democrats lost 63 seats to the Republicans in 2010, it doesn't look like Donald Trump and the Republicans will lose almost that many seats to Democrats in these 2018 midterms. At least three other red districts flipped to blue. In the Senate, Republicans are cautiously optimistic they will hold onto - or even add seats to - their slim 51-49 majority.

All 435 seats up for election, with 218 seats needed for the majority.

Republicans will retain control of the Senate, ABC News projects
Pennsylvania looked particularly daunting for Republicans after redistricting and a rash of retirements put several seats in play. Trump's aggressive campaign blitz, which paid off in some key victories, suggests he is likely to continue leaning into the fray.

Sanders spoke to reporters at the White House Tuesday night, as election returns were still coming in.

Bredesen is running against Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn for Tennessee's open U.S. Senate seat in the state's top race.

If Donnelly loses, the Democrats' hope of taking over the US Senate is probably lost, too.

The Republican grip on high-profile governorships in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well. Under President Trump, over 4 million new jobs have been created, unemployment is the lowest it has been since 1969, wages have increased, taxes have decreased, unneeded regulations have been slashed, the median household income is up to a post-recession high of over $61,000, consumer confidence is at an 18-year high, over $450 billion dollars has been poured into the United States and the economy is on pace to grow at over 3 percent in 2018 for the first time since 2005.

"The 'resistance, ' they call it", Richard Milner, 66, a boat inspector from Norfolk, Virginia, said of Trump's opponents. "They ignored the consultants who said they should cover up their tattoos and smile more, and they ignored the powerful men of the Republican Party who never took them seriously anyway".

Trump - a 72-year-old former reality TV star and businessman-turned-politician - had hardened his rhetoric down the stretch on issues that appealed to his conservative core supporters, issuing warnings about a caravan of Latin American migrants headed to the border with Mexico and condemnations of liberal American "mobs".

His controversial decision to appoint judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was also met with huge criticism. First-term Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen ousted him, attacking him for backing last year's Republican effort to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law. "The Democrats still essentially have no path to the majority without winning one of these three states: North Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas, and the Republicans retain what appear to be edges in all three". Ted Cruz in Texas. John McCain (Ariz.) and the retirements of Sens.

"Any time you're a Democrat in a seat that was held by a Republican. if you come in and join the Democratic supermajority to enact some tax bill that's very unpopular with your constituents, that's a problem for you", Shortell said. All three and Sherrod Brown, a pro-labor senator victorious in OH, are considered potential 2020 Democratic presidential contenders.

Ballot counting could drag in tight races, leaving some races undecided long after Election Day. Thirty-three incumbent Republicans plan to retire from the House after their current term. Thad Cochran would go to a late November runoff.

Fundraising, polls and history were not on the president's side.
