Trump, First Lady Follow Results of Midterms at White House - Spokesperson

Andrew Gibson of Streetsboro Ohio casts his ballot as his daughter Sophia McNeal age four looks

McAdams believes that Republicans and Democrats are effectively the same. Marsha Blackburn triumphed in Tennessee. After some moments of doubt, the voters of New Jersey seem to have chose to hold their collective noses and vote to keep the Senate seat blue rather than give it to GOP challenger Bob Hugin - and Mitch McConnell. We will be at both the headquarters for Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Republican challenger Marc Molinaro.

Senate President Peter Courtney told The Associated Press he felt Oregon Democrats' celebrations Tuesday evening were too strong. Democratic favorite Conor Lamb stunned Washington by winning a special election in the state and faced Republican Rep. Keith Rothfus in a new district that was among four that could flip from red to blue. What was not normal was that Menendez had been indicted on corruption charges and escaped with hung jury.

Anxious Republicans have privately expressed confidence in their narrow Senate majority but fear the House is slipping away.

"Democrats are inviting caravan after caravan, illegal immigrants to flood into our country", he said at a rally on the election's eve Monday.

Still, about one-third of voters said Trump was not a factor in their votes.

To do that they need to win 218 of the 435 seats in the lower house, the House of Representatives. But the changing demographics of the district - which became majority-minority after redistricting in 2011 - have turned it into one of the most competitive House races in the Lone Star State. Trump carried the district by three points as part of his nine-point victory in the state.

If Democrats do manage to take the House, they will be in position to provide the first institutional check on Trump's presidency - a role Republicans have chosen not to play given his political dominance on the right.

Mr Trump attended three rallies on the final day of campaigning, telling his supporters: "Everything we have achieved is at stake tomorrow".

Dead brothel owner Dennis Hof wins election in Nevada, U.S.
His campaign manager actually seemed to admit at one stage that Hof's death might have improved his voting performance. Hof defeated Democratic challenger Lesia Romanov .

Indeed, the election was in many ways a referendum on the president himself, two years after he beat most predictions and took the White House, even as he lost the popular vote.

In trying to stem Republican losses, Trump made only passing reference to his $1.5 trillion tax cut - the GOP Congress' signature achievement - and instead barnstormed through mostly white regions of the country, interjecting dark and foreboding warnings.

Voters also elect who they want for state governors and local public offices. In 2016, Trump won the suburban Atlanta district by a single point. Heidi Heitkamp was defeated in North Dakota, while Sen. Other Democrats fighting for political survival included Missouri's Claire McCaskill, Indiana's Joe Donnelly and Bill Nelson of Florida.

The Republican grip on high-profile governorships in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well.

"The 'resistance, ' they call it", Richard Milner, 66, a boat inspector from Norfolk, Virginia, said of Trump's opponents.

Voter Ontaria Woods said about two dozen people who had come to vote left because of the lines.

Amid the recent rash of letter bombs and the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, Trump issued alarming and often unfounded warnings about caravans of migrants crossing Mexico toward the USA, blaming Democrats, without evidence, for the threat he claimed they pose. "Trump needs help in Congress", Mooney said, adding that he was "disappointed and embarrassed" by the way Democratic senators treated Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, during his confirmation hearings. First-term Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen ousted him, attacking him for backing last year's Republican effort to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law. "Somebody lost last night, and they lost pretty good", Courtney said in a telephone interview. John McCain (Ariz.) and the retirements of Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Tennessee's Bob Corker, both leaving Congress after accusing Trump of dishonesty and questioning his competence. An open seat that included Atlantic City was also ripe for Democratic pickup by state lawmaker Jeff Van Drew after the GOP campaign committee abandoned Republican Seth Grossman over racially charged comments.

The O'Rourke-Cruz race is one of a handful of Senate contests being closely watched and O'Rourke, a former punk rocker, has mounted a surprisingly tough challenge against Cruz in traditionally Republican Texas. Potential 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls who seemed certain to win included Vermont independent Bernie Sanders and New York's Kirsten Gillibrand. Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature. Thirty-three incumbent Republicans plan to retire from the House after their current term. Republicans who dominate the state would probably prevail, but waiting for the outcome could extend the uncertainty about the Senate's party breakdown - and perhaps which side has control.
