Democrats capture US House majority in rebuke to Trump

Democrats capture US House majority in rebuke to Trump

The victory by the staunchly pro-labor Brown, which was expected, underscored that Trump's 2016 dominance of that and other Midwestern states was not a lock.

Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren were easily re-elected, the first of a batch of potential 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls expected to win fresh Senate terms. Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies any collusion.

Trump can speak to the American people when he is up for re-election and explain how he is the only one that can improve their lives because the Democrats just want to play political games.

"We didn't agonize, we organized", she said.

"Tremendous success tonight. Thank you to all!" the president said on Twitter, his only remarks after projections came in.

Curbelo is a leader of the bipartisan Climate Caucus and bucked GOP leadership this summer by supporting a tax on emissions of carbon dioxide, a contributor to global warming.

Trump - a 72-year-old former reality TV star and businessman-turned-politician - had hardened his rhetoric down the stretch on issues that appealed to his conservative core supporters, issuing warnings about a caravan of Latin American migrants headed to the border with Mexico and condemnations of liberal American "mobs".

Democrats, whose very relevance in the Trump era depended on winning at least one chamber of Congress, were laser-focused on health care as they predicted victories that would break up the GOP's monopoly in Washington and state governments. Most of those are Democrats trying to keep their seats.

Tuesday night's results mark a comeback for the Democratic Party, which last held control of the House in 2010, and will fundamentally shift the balance of power in Washington.

The entire 435-member House of Representatives and a third of the 100-seat Senate are up for grabs.

"I like to tweet about the blue wave, but I don't think the blue wave's coming", Wolf said on "America's Newsroom", predicting that if Democrats do take the House it will be by 10 seats or less.

Despite a seemingly energized grassroots electorate, the Democratic Party has been viewed as a long shot to take back control of the Senate where Republicans now hold a narrow majority of 51 seats to 49 seats for Democrats. A disproportionate number of the seats up for election were in traditionally Republican states with Democratic incumbents.

Some of the campaign's biggest Democratic stars lost.

Trump has framed the elections as a choice between law and order maintained by Republicans and an out-of-control Democratic mob, while focusing heavily on hardline immigration campaign promises, including a legally dubious pledge to end birthright citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants born in the US.

In gubernatorial races, Republican Kris Kobach, a Trump ally, was beaten by a Democrat in Kansas. Democrats also captured governorships in MI and IL.

Voters between the ages of 18 and 34 backed Democrats by 62% to 34%, up from 2014 when 54% backed Democrats and 36% supported Republicans.

Of course, Democrats have been in this position before: Two years ago, polling indicated that Hillary Clinton was more likely become the next President of the United States, and she fell short in a night that shocked the country. 25 percent described health care and immigration as the most important issues in the election, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate. The GOP had been given a good but not solid chance of retaining control of the Senate, through which President Trump's judicial nominees must travel.

But the return to split control of Congress after four years of GOP majorities will be a major test for the president, who has shown little ability to reach across the aisle.

Trump had noted the energy as he wrapped up a punishing schedule of rallies around the country that were meant to boost Republican candidates - and his own brand heading towards reelection in 2020.

Republican gains in the Senate are sure to bolster the party's efforts to ram conservative federal judges through confirmation proceedings during a lame duck session that starts next week, as well as next year.

Voters also punished moderate Senate Democrats running in Trump-heavy states who opposed the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Cruz' failure to receive the Republican nomination for president in 2016 along with his scuffles with President Trump had set him at odds with his own party.
