Networks declare Democrats will capture the House of Representatives

President Donald Trump returns to the White House after campaigning

Democrats were projected to win back control of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, as voters sent a message that they wanted a check on Donald Trump's presidency.

Polling stations are closing in what has been described as the most divisive midterm elections in decades.

Trump tweeted Tuesday night: "Tremendous success tonight".

All members of the House are up for election, and Democrats are talking up a blue wave taking over. Heidi Heitkamp and when Republican businessman Mike Braun ousted Sen. Joe Donnelly in IN and Republican Marsha Blackburn's win in Tennessee made it much more hard for Democrats to make inroads.

At the Player's Retreat, Adamson, Evans and Ford had gathered with fans and other candidates, cheering when other Democrats pulled ahead in a race.

In Texas, Sen Ted Cruz staved off a far tougher than expected challenge from Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke, whose record-smashing fundraising and celebrity have set off buzz he could be a credible 2020 White House contender.

Pelosi's return to the speakership is likely but not assured, as some of the House candidates running in Trump-won districts tried to distance themselves from her leadership. The incumbent was reprimanded by a Senate ethics panel after corruption charges were dismissed following a mistrial, turning a what should have been a sure bet for Democrats into a close fight.

If Democrats capture the House, they could launch congressional investigations into Trump's administration, including his tax returns, possible business conflicts of interest and the nature of his 2016 campaign's ties to Russian Federation. Perhaps more important, they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trump's personal and professional shortcomings.

It reports that failure in the midterms could plunge the Democrats into an "utter and complete psychological meltdown".

While he is not on the ballot, Trump acknowledged on Monday that the 2018 midterms represent a referendum on his presidency.

Trump has headlined 30 rallies in two months and packed out arenas of adoring fans. A survey by the a Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement found that 45 per cent of the young voters will probably stamp a ballot for the Democrats, while 25 per cent will for the Republicans.

Trump warns of 'fragile' victories in final midterm sprint
They do unbelievable work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way and it is an honor to work with such great professionals". The Fox News employees all spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

"Everything we have achieved is at stake", Trump declared in his final day of campaigning. He was active on Twitter throughout much of the day, blasting out endorsements for Republican candidates and weighing in on the balloting. "His actions, his verbage, he's clearly the focal point", said Tim Phillips, president of the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity, which has poured millions into certain races this cycle to help preserve the Republican majority.

Democrats were always facing an uphill battle in the Senate this year because they were defending 26 seats, while just nine Republican seats were up for grabs.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said her party had momentum on its side.

"We always knew these races are going to be close", said Rep. Katherine Clark of MA, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts. "Do not let their scare tactics frighten you away from the polls". Aid to Israel- including emergency aid in times of conflict- goes through the House, and votes on such aid were the subject of debate in several races across the country. He dispatched more than 5,000 troops to the region, suggesting soldiers would use lethal force against migrants who throw rocks, before later reversing himself. I mean, I only became a citizen previous year", said Kevin Ombija, a first-time voter originally from Kenya who now lives in Washington, D.C. "Issues of immigrants are very dear to me. A CBS News exit poll offers some clues.

Her group, one of many formed since Trump's election and after the Women's March, connected thousands of women in the Atlanta area interested in becoming more politically active.

"Barbara Comstock is good, but I don't like Trump", she said.

"It could happen", President Trump acknowledged this past Friday evening about losing the lower chamber, echoing the same sentiments many strategists and lawmakers have been forecasting for the past year.

Tuesday's midterm elections were among the most bitter in years.

Election workers assist would-be voters at First Ward Creative Arts Academy on November 6, 2018, in Charlotte, North Carolina. His campaign team created an advertisement focused on the caravan that was so racially charged that major TV networks pulled it.

But those are the swing districts.

Even in state and local races, there was national interest. Other seats in the state were also considered in play.
