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

  • Voters cast their ballots in the midterm elections on Nov. 6 2018 in Appleton Wisconsin

"There are some assumptions about states Democratic presidential candidates will visit that are being truly reconsidered", Democratic strategist Anita Dunn said.

At a White House news conference, Trump noted the contenders who ran with him and won, including Illinois GOP Reps. Democrats regained control of the House, while the GOP maintained control of the Senate.

U.S. President Donald Trump is taking the results of the midterm elections - Republicans kept the Senate and the Democrats took the House of Representatives - as a big victory for his party.

Yesterday's results highlighted the fact that the focal point of the struggle for electoral superiority over the next two years and probably beyond will be in the suburbs. Democrats also reclaimed a handful of blue-collar districts carried by both former President Barack Obama and Trump.

Now that they have taken control of the House from the Republicans, Democratic leaders of many committees will have subpoena powers enabling them to obtain documents, email and testimony. Trump and his daughter Ivanka, a senior White House adviser, both retained their stakes in the property.

Two years ago, Trump secured his victory by winning two big prizes, OH easily and Florida narrowly, and then carrying Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania by the thinnest or margins - less that one percentage point in each state. Iowa has sent women to the Senate and governor's mansions, but never to the House of Representatives. What that means for 2020 is not entirely clear, given that two of the senators and one of the governors elected were incumbents.

Democrats are now more likely to actively seek to stymy the president's agenda barring a dramatic and highly doubtful about-face by the president on his major policy goals. But party strategists acknowledged that much work remains to be done in those Midwest battlegrounds.

Whether or not the night constitutes a "blue wave" for Democrats is unclear given the mixed results overall and the typical losses for the president's party, but the split Congress will make life more hard for the president. Bob Menendez, who, less than a year ago, stood trial for federal corruption charges.

"I think you should let me run the country". OH long has been a fiercely contested state, though one with a slight Republican edge.

The Republicans have taken Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota from the Democrats.

As one Democrat put it: "We have not figured out Florida, which is a problem".

The Democrats, in turn, benefited from extraordinary voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates.

In Virginia, political newcomer Jennifer Wexton defeated two-term GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock.

Views on sexual harassment diverged similarly: About 8 in 10 said they see it as a "serious problem", and almost two-thirds of them voted Democratic.

"I love our country", he said, "you have nationalists, you have globalists", adding "I also love the world".

The best news for the Republicans is that they protected several of their own vulnerable chambers, including the Arizona Senate, the Iowa House, the Michigan House, the Minnesota Senate and the Wisconsin Senate. In the end, Democrats held just 188 seats to 247 for Republicans.

A rough analysis of the races showed 18 Democrats who either were victorious or were leading won their races by five percentage points or fewer.

She has donated millions of dollars to help the Democrats win back the House, including $6.7 million to those in competitive districts Democrats were aiming to flip from Republican control, and she has several weeks to dangle promising committee assignments or other incentives to secure votes.

Mr Trump entertains no such thoughts, instead calling Tuesday night's results "very close to complete victory".

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel argued today that Democrats must build an urban-suburban coalition through issues like healthcare and education and thereby prevent the President from driving a wedge between the two constituencies on other issues.

The House Judiciary Committee will focus on whether Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because Comey declined to go easy on Mike Flynn - the president's friend and national security adviser - as Comey has said the president demanded.
