Republicans projected to keep control of Senate

Despite his party losing the House, Trump wrote on Twitter, "Tremendous success tonight".

Democrats are favored by election forecasters to pick up the minimum of 23 House seats they need for a majority, which would enable them to stymie Trump's legislative agenda and investigate his administration. They also held onto competitive seats in Texas, where Sen.

Realistically, Democrats wouldn't have expected to win all these races. The president was a constant presence on the campaign trail in the last six months, but he rarely stopped by to help House Republicans - an illustration of how intensely unpopular he was in suburban districts across the country, and his decision to train his fire only on motivating hardline base voters to ensure he'd keep the Senate.

With about 40 students filling the Alpha Chi Rho fraternity house living room for the GPA party, reactions to victories from both parties have been generally subtle, but the atmosphere was shattered as Cruz's victory in the closely contested Senate race prompted a resounding boo from the audience. The Alaska Legislature is also in play this year - but how likely is control to shift in either the Democratic-controlled House or the Republican-controlled Senate? Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, CNN projected.

After a day of historically high turnout at the polls, Penn students gathered at bars, fraternity houses and dorm lounges to monitor the results of Tuesday's midterm elections. History, serving as a guide, predicted this would probably be a bad night for the president. She also tamped down liberal cries for Trump's impeachment.

"It really shows that voters in Pennsylvania that narrowly went for Trump in 2016 are not happy with what's been going on in the Trump Administration", said Weisman, a College senior. They were totally unacceptable today after the world has experienced President Trump's first two years in office.

"In this election, they sought to energise groups that Clinton did not: young voters, Latinos, African Americans and infrequent voters", the daily said.

"Nothing is more powerful than the voice of the American people, and they spoke out loud and clear: Donald Trump does not stand for our values, the Republican Party has failed to hold him accountable, and it's time for bold Democratic leadership in Washington". He served as vice chairman of Trump's now-defunct commission on voter fraud. Democrats blamed the charged political atmosphere for the increase in anti-Semitism. "So, something is happening", Trump told reporters on Monday, shrugging off suggestions that Democrats had the momentum.

With results still coming in, Democrats were on track to gain control of the House, while Republicans kept their Senate majority.

The House of Representatives, which reliably churned out hard-line immigration legislation, Obamacare repeal and steep cuts to social programmes under Republican rule - even though numerous bills died in the Senate - will now start offering up progressive priorities.

"The Trump White House, by and large, has let the Pentagon have a lot of free rein", Smith said.

He was due to be joined by Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman and the President's ex-campaign aides, David Bossie and Corey Lewandowski, a source familiar with the guest list said.

Two other sources close to the White House said that Trump is already blaming retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan for the loss of the House.

In the Florida governor's race, Democrat Andrew Gillum lost an absolute nail-biter to Republican Ron DeSantis. Democrat Jared Polis in Colorado became the first openly gay man elected governor.

During the campaign, Trump repeatedly demonized Pelosi, accusing her and other Democrats of supporting open borders, welcoming MS 13 gang members and destroying Obamacare. With Democrats winning the House, they must now elect their leader, and Pelosi's future will depend on the outcome of a simmering party power struggle.

Republicans enjoy a slim 51-49 edge in the Senate and are favoured to hang on to their majority since Democrats are defending 26 seats on Tuesday and the Republicans only nine. But a Kawasaki victory wouldn't change the Senate majority itself - Hoffman could come back to the Democrats, and three moderate Republicans could join Democrats in a bipartisan coalition, but that still leaves the Senate tied, 10-10.
