'She Has Earned This': Trump Praises Pelosi, Warns Democrats

Democrats capture House GOP holds Senate	 	 	 			Trump aims to upend convention again after midterm campaign of fear lies and defiance

The opposition Democratic Party have regained control of the lower US House of Representatives from President Donald Trump's Republicans in the midterm elections, powered by a suburban revolt that threatens what's left of the president's governing agenda. But the GOP gained ground in the Senate and preserved key governorships, beating back a "blue wave" that never fully materialized.

Blue-collar voters and rural America embraced his aggressive talk and stances.

Working on just a few hours' sleep after a heavy final day of campaigning, Trump spent much of Tuesday on the phone, checking in with friends and advisers, talking to state and national Republican Party officials and White House aides to get a picture of what to expect.

Two other key Democratic lawmakers, Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who will nearly certainly head the House Oversight Committee, and Adam Schiff of the Intelligence Committee, have both called for new oversight of Trump and his administration, probes often blocked by majority Republicans in the past two years.

"We did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by Democrats' wealthy donors and special interests and very hostile media coverage, to put it mildly", Trump said at the White House on November 7.

Ms Pelosi - who is set to become speaker, a position she held from 2007 to 2011 - told supporters: "Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans".

The 2018 elections also exposed an extraordinary political realignment in an electorate defined by race, gender, and education that could shape USA politics for years to come.

The GOP's successes were fueled by a coalition that's decidedly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have college degrees.

Record diversity on the ballot may have helped drive turnout.

Many of them have made history- such as the first two Muslim American women elected to Congress, the first Native American women elected to Congress and the first woman senators for their states. They also attracted a higher proportion of younger voters than at the last midterm elections four years ago and their new lawmakers will make the House younger, more female and more diverse. A margin of less than half a percentage point automatically triggers a recount.

But also in Texas, Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke, a charismatic congressman and former punk rock singer who had raised an unprecedented $60 million in his mission to win in the Republican stronghold, fell short to arch-conservative former presidential contender Ted Cruz. Roskam kept his distance from Trump in a district that went for Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016.

For example, Cummings and other Democratic lawmakers past year filed a federal lawsuit demanding disclosures of records to determine how Trump was approved by the General Services Administration to maintain the lease of the Trump International Hotel in Washington after he became president. "Now what's bad for them is, being in the majority, I'm just going to blame them", Mr. Trump said.

Trump sought to take credit for retaining the GOP's Senate majority, even as the party's foothold in the House was slipping.

The Republicans are on course to increase their representation from 51 to 54 in the 100-seat Senate upper chamber. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. will be the second Democrat to lose his Finance committee seat if he fails to overtake incumbent Gov. Rick Scott in a potential Florida Senate recount.

Some hurt worse than others.

Trump encouraged voters to view the 2018 midterms as a referendum on his leadership, pointing proudly to the surging economy at recent rallies.

Leader of the House Nancy Pelosi pledged to hold the Republican presidency to account after Mr Trump's tumultuous two years in the White House.
