Democrats fight for House control; GOP's Braun wins Indiana

Democrats fight for House control; GOP's Braun wins Indiana

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.

He didn't sound very sorry.

And Pelosi, during a news conference that was delayed because of Trump's lengthy remarks, said she had worked productively with President George W. Bush when she was speaker a decade ago on taxes and other issues, and she welcomed the chance to do so again with Trump.

Stacey Abrams refuses to concede the governor's race in Georgia to her opponent Brian Kemp.

The expected "thumping" and "shellacking" - terms deployed respectively by George W. Bush and Barack Obama to describe their party's major midterm defeats - didn't materialize.

Plus, he said, Democrats have "nothing, zero", on him. Trump's remarks shared his predecessors' candor but none of their humility.

The president also mocked Republicans who did not "embrace" him on the campaign trail, and went on to lose their election races.

"At the end of the day, ME people don't care which party you identify with, they just want someone who is honest, believes in our state and vows to do what they say they'll do", Jackson said. "I think I feel just fine about it".

It's likely the Senate will end up at around 54-46, in favour of Republicans. In the party of Trump, loyalty is a one-way street.

Hultgren appeared at a rally with Trump a little over a week before the election, and Trump sent out an endorsement tweet Tuesday afternoon. At age 29, Ocasio Cortez of NY seizes the record from Republican Elise Stefanik, who was elected at age 30 in 2014. There will be plenty of both groups present when the 116th Congress begins in January.

Those ideas animated Trump's inaugural address, which sought to align the GOP with American workers. The specifics of their arguments differ, but the central thesis is the same. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by revulsion over Trump.

"The Senate is a pretty collegial place and even though we had big differences over things like taxes and judges, there were plenty of other things we did together and no reason that would stop simply because the House now becomes Democratic", he said.

'That's gone from 10/1 to 3/1 on Trump being impeached in 2019'.

Here are seven trailblazers who won their races and made history. Tammy Baldwin's campaign. "If they do, Trump's map starts to get more hard".

Yet Trump's party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least.

Welch's comments come fresh off Tuesday's election and the Democratic Party claiming a majority in the lower chamber for the first time in eight years.

That means that the only obviously Trump-skeptical Republican to win a statewide race on Tuesday-the newly elected senator-to-be from Utah, Mitt Romney-may not have much leverage either. Democrats were able to ride opposition to Trump to wins in more Democratic-leaning states like NY and deep-red states like Oklahoma. He could do this by going back to some of the more unorthodox ideas that animated his presidential campaign and that helped him to turn Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania (briefly) red. The "sorry, Mia" might have been typical Trumpian ad-libbing, but the rest was decidedly not. They won the popular vote and, for the first time since 2008, independent voters - who aren't affiliated with either party - backed the Democrats, and by a sizable margin. "There's definitely a turnout benefit to talking to conservatives the way Trump has".

Donald Trump came to the East Room of the White House with olive branch in hand, but it sometimes seemed like his fingers were crossed behind his back.

At one point during the press conference, a visibly angry Trump branded CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta a "rude, bad person" and an "enemy of the people" in a testy exchange. The latter emphasise Trump's surprisingly protectionist economic rhetoric - once unthinkable from a Republican - that railed against a system controlled by global elites to the detriment of the working Americans who've watched their jobs disappear.

Trump may not care much.

Democrats have already piled up scores of subpoenas of documents and witnesses which Republicans have repeatedly rejected over the past two years.
