Pelosi as House Speaker Would 'Show the Power of the Gavel'

Daniel Rimbau waits to enter an election night party for Republican US Senator Ted Cruz

Women won at least 85 seats in the House, making a new record.

And outside Richmond, Virginia, one-time tea party favorite Rep. Dave Brat lost to Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative motivated to run for office after the GOP vote to gut the Affordable Care Act.

"I am so honored to share both the ballot and the stage with the many visionary, bold women who have raised their hand to run for public office", said Ayanna Pressley, who became the first black woman elected to Congress from MA.

But under the Constitution's general operating principles, the House and the Senate need to agree in the majority on any laws that are passed, subject to a presidential veto.

Michael Oren, Israel's deputy Cabinet minister for public diplomacy and a former ambassador to Washington, says the results made it more likely that President Donald Trump would turn to global diplomacy to reach a deal for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The California Democrat doesn't think Americans fully understand the significance of the speaker's job - which, after the vice president, is next in line to the White House. China says it handles all trademark applications equally, but House committees could probe whether Beijing can exploit the Trump family's substantial intellectual property holdings in China to its political or diplomatic advantage. Further, Democrats had an underwhelming performance in OH, where gubernatorial nominee Richard Cordray lost and incumbent senator Sherrod Brown won by only six points against a weak Republican.

Waters also said that Democrats were now focused on ensuring Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign was protected following a shake-up on Wednesday at the Justice Department.

With Democrats seizing control of the House, Republicans for the first time in the Trump era will no longer hold sway in all branches of the federal government. Republican senator Cindy Hyde-Smith of MS is heading to a run-off election later this month. Women were newly elected in Michigan, South Dakota, New Mexico, Kansas, and ME, bringing the total number of female state executives to nine, matching the record set in 2004.

Every seat in the House was up for grabs on Tuesday.

Democratic candidates jumped into races, motivated by opposition to the president's agenda and the Republicans' proposed changes to health care.

In a post-midterm election news conference Wednesday, President Trump doubled down on his endorsement for Pelosi (D-Calif.), the presumptive new Speaker after Democrats recaptured the House in Tuesday's midterm elections.

The new Democratic House majority will end the Republican Party's dominance in Washington for the final two years of Trump's first term with major questions looming about healthcare, immigration and government spending. "And they are part of our path to it". Her opponent, Brian Kemp, was ahead in a very close race early on Wednesday and Abrams said she would not concede until all the votes were counted. "This could be the beginning of a decade of the woman where you have more women running and moving up because you filled the pipeline".

Over her lengthy congressional career, Waters has emerged as a fierce critic of big banks like Goldman Sachs Group Inc, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Citigroup Inc and plans to increase oversight of those firms in her new role.

In the 115th Congress, 11 states - Idaho, Montana, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Rhode Island, Vermont, South Carolina and Kentucky - had no women in their congressional delegations.

In locking down a majority, Democratic candidates flipped seats in several suburban districts outside Washington, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Denver and Dallas that were considered prime targets for turnover because they were won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. MA elected its first black congresswoman, and Tennessee got its first female senator. And Jahana Hayes, the 2016 National Teacher of the Year, will be Connecticut's first black congresswoman.

Russian President Vladimir Putin denies any involvement in Trump's election victory, but he may quietly favor a renewed investigation, seeing them as a way to sow chaos and division in America's bitterly divided political arena.
