Democrats on track to take House control, but GOP retains Senate

Democrats Win First Two Republican Held Seats In US Midterms

The Republicans held on to the Senate and narrowly survived a number of big individual races, including in Florida.

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

Long lines and malfunctioning machines marred the first hours of voting in some precincts, including in Georgia, where some voters reported waiting up to three hours to vote in a hotly contested gubernatorial election.

Still, Trump said that regardless of whether he thought the elections were a reflection of his time in office, "the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement". "Certainly we feel good about where things are headed".

"If we actually care about women's health and we actually are a state that's a leader in this country, then the Reproductive Health Act is one of those bills that will make sure that we protect women", she added.

But when it came to candidates for state Senate, Democratic primary voters threw their weight behind progressive candidates, including 27-year-old democratic socialist Julia Salazar - who actively campaigned on issues like sex workers' rights and racial injustice - and Alessandra Biaggi, another millennial and first-time candidate.

President Donald Trump weighed in on Tuesday's midterm elections via Twitter. Minnesota and Montana are close, with a less than five percent gap between approval and disapproval.

While Sanders suggested Trump could blow off Pelosi in the wake of the midterms, she noted that the president is willing to work with whatever party ultimately ends up in power.

It's unclear just exactly how many House seats Republicans lost on Tuesday, but at this point the outcome didn't look as bad as that of 2010, when former president Barack Obama's Democratic Party lost a whopping 63 House seats just after Congress passed the Affordable Care Act.

We had moments, we had kind of nearly-chances, the biggest in the last two three minutes and before that not enough. James Milner laid into his Liverpool team-mates after the Reds were beaten 2-0 by Red Star Belgrade.

All 435 seats in the US House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive. In almost every state with a key contested Senate or governor's race, he has a positive approval and is over 50%, according to CNN's preliminary exit poll data. Some are from districts Trump won in 2016 and see the San Franciscan as too liberal, while others represent liberal strongholds that view her as too willing to compromise. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen.

"We can raise all boats, together, and we are (doing that) in New York", Cuomo said.

The President had dinner with his family and watched the results, which could have a profound impact on the rest of his term and could reshape Washington's balance of power, in the residence of the White House. Neither could actually be removed from office without a two-thirds Senate vote, but a Democrat House could dominate months of congressional business and news headlines with investigations and proceedings.

The political and practical stakes were sky-high. Democrats will also be able to halt many items on Trump's legislative agenda, border wall funding, and a new middle-class tax cut. Perhaps more important, they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trump's personal and professional shortcomings. Within minutes of their victory being confirmed, Democrats were already threatening to go after Trump's tax returns. Democrats are relying more upon women, people of colour, young people and college graduates.

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. Hispanic voters favored Democratic House candidates by 33 percentage points - higher than the 18-percentage point gap that Democrats enjoyed in 2014, the poll found.

The demographic divides were coloring the political landscape in different ways.

Speaker Joe Straus, a San Antonio Republican who ousted a fellow Republican with help from House Democrats in 2009, is retiring.

Pelosi said the election Tuesday was about more than Republicans and Democrats.
