Porter Projected To Win In Orange County As Democrats Take The Lead

Kentucky Sen. Mitch Mc Connell on Wednesday was re-elected majority leader of the Senate Republican conference as Democrats voted to keep New York Sen. Chuck Schumer as their leader

Most of the other leadership races were uncontested and decided on a voice vote. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, was elected to the third-ranking position in the GOP hierarchy and will be the next Republican conference chair.

The GOP has gained only one seat in the Senate and has a majority of 51-47 after original projections of gaining as many as four seats. Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer also was vying for the job as vice chair of the Senate Republican conference. She is critical of some Democrats' support for legislation that rolled back oversight of many large banks, and said she hopes to serve on committees that allow her to apply her expertise in financial policy.

Mr. Jordan, co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus, blamed the GOP's recent electoral losses on retiring House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and his top lieutenants, including Mr. McCarthy.

Mr. Jordan of OH said the GOP suffered in the midterm elections because party leaders did not fulfill campaign promises.

While his 2015 run to replace Boehner was derailed by opposition from conservatives, McCarthy benefited Wednesday from the fact that he only needed a simple majority of House Republicans' support, and not 218 votes on the House floor.

The proportion of white men within the Democratic caucus is set to drop from 41% to 38% next year, while the same percentage is set to rise among Republicans from 86% to 90%. But the California Republican, who is an ally of President Donald Trump, must fend off a challenge from conservative Jim Jordan of Ohio.

Schumer was quick to tout the cohesiveness of Senate Democrats at a press conference after leadership elections. As midterm election results continue to come in, Democrats have made further gains in the House.

"I may only be three heartbeats away from the Oval Office, but my heart is and always will be in Iowa and here in the U.S. Senate, where I've worked for the people of Iowa and our nation for 38 years", Grassley said in a statement Wednesday.

Republicans lost the control of the House for the first time in eight years but remains the majority in the Senate during the midterm elections held last week.

The race for minority leader is McCarthy's to lose Wednesday.
