Democrats reiterate control of the House, Republicans hold the majority of the Senate, as at midnight leave the division of power in Washington

The Democrats imposed control of the House of Representatives on Tuesday night after eight long years of power, facing a major failure in President Trump's legislative program – but the Republicans were able to extend their close majority to the Senate and with them to retain the capacity to confirm court candidates.

The decision to split into Capitol Hill is one of the most intense and chaotic mid-term campaign times in the recent memory, when President Truum joined the country for GOP candidates, and powerful Democrats, such as Barack Obama's predecessor, did the same on the other hand.

For his part, Trump was able to prevent a total democratic takeover in Congress. He reacted positively, but with late results at the end of Tuesday, writing on Twitter, "Great success tonight, thank you all!"

In an impetus for Trump, the continuation of the GOP in the Senate gives Republicans the control of all crucial federal judicial appointments, including nominations in the Supreme Court. The Republicans overturned a series of Senate seats on Tuesday, with victories from Josh Hawley by Senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri, Kevin Cramer from Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Republican Governor Rick Scott over longtime Sen. Bill Nelson in Florida, and Mike Braun for Joe Donnelly in Indiana.

GOP Senator Ted Cruz also closed a revolt by Beto O'Rourke in Texas.

But the Democrats' victory in this House gives new hope to the liberals who want to investigate and perhaps even blame the president. Taking over in this room ensures a controversial next two years that will lead to the presidential elections in 2020.

Democrats will also be able to put a stop to many things in Trump's legislative wish list, including funding the proposed border wall and a new middle-class tax cut – or at least get significant concessions on issues such as immigration reform before entry of the Trump.

Although the exact size of the respective majority of parties in the House and the Senate is not clear, the Democrats will soon have to decide whether to restore Nancy Pelosi to her old job as a speaker of the House she held from 2007 to 2011 .

"We will have a Congress that is transparent and open to the American people," Pelosi said on Tuesday night. "We will work for the most daring common denominator."

"Tomorrow will be a new day in America," he added. "We all have enough division, the American people want peace, they want results."

Intermediates, Pelozzi said, were mainly "to restore the controls and balances of the Constitution to the Trump administration."

The projection of a reactionary relationship with the White House, even when he said the Democrats "are seeking unity," the Pelosi wished that the Republicans become "more destructive everyday" and tend to enrich the rich.

Pelosi and Congressional Democrats have vowed to open a series of White House investigations after recovering the House, including sample checks for Trump's vague personal tax statements, alleged collusion with Russia, and possible violations of ethics by officials of the administration.

"We will work for the most daring common denominator."

Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are candidates to head the House's Financial Services Committee, the Information Committee and the Judicial Committee, respectively. By scrutinizing these and other key committees, Democrats will have the legal authority to issue calls to force Republicans and others to provide documents or to appear in hearings – and to seek scrutiny if they fail to comply.

"We will be able to get answers that the Republicans did not want to follow," Sif told CNN in October. "Files that the Republicans would not ask". (Pelosi said the Trump tax declaration would be "one of the first things we would do").

Schiff added that he would "have a very high priority" in determining whether Trump had washed money through Russia.

The Republicans, meanwhile, have blamed the expectations of a blue wave largely with the strength of several big profits in the Senate. Cruz sealed the result by defeating O'Rourke in the Senate's most expensive fight in American history.

Rourke, 46, who had sought to become the first democrat to win a state match in Texas since 1994, set a fundraising record with only $ 70 million in the last quarter. He started his campaign with the promise of diplomacy and unity that contrasted with Cruz's highly conservative record.

But Mr O'Rourke's policy proposals – including pushing President Trump, adopting an expensive Medicare-for-all program, and possibly the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Service (ICE), have removed many voters in Texas's Conservative Fortifications.

And Missoway Attorney General Josh Hawley captured vulnerable popular Democrat Senator McCaskill, whose call to a Trump state that doubles in 2016 fades as he voted against the Supreme Court Court Brett Kavanaugh. On Monday, McCaskill, who was presented as a moderate, claimed that "he did not care" which party won the Senate.

"Obviously we failed and that's frustrating," said McCaskill on Tuesday night. "I feel pain for people who said they are going to do more than sit on the couch and move the TV."


Fox News's decision-making office also expects Cramer to leave a senator Senator Heitkamp in North Dakota, marking a critical Senate crisis for the GOP. Heitkamp, ​​who fought for a long time against Cramer in a credible red situation, may have stamped his political fate last month when he opposed Kavanaugh's confirmation.

In Indiana, Mike Braun, an entrepreneur, will defeat former Democratic senator Joe Donnelly, another Democrat, whose vote against Kavanaugh proved costly. The race was one of the most competitive races in the country and Braun's victory marks another big win for the GOP. Trump had aggressively campaigned for Braun in recent days.


In another basic race for the Republicans, the Fox News Decision Desk suggests that Republican Marsa Blackburn will defeat former Democratic Governor Phil Brentsen to replace retired Senator Gong Coach. While Blackburn spent the summer with Bredesen in the polls, he closed the gap and took the lead a month ago, despite the latest official recognition of pop star Taylor Swift for Bredesen.


Former Republican President-elect Mitt Romney will also be defeating Democratic Jenny Wilson in order to achieve the retirement of OPEN Orin Hast, as expected. The former Massachusetts governor, a former Trump critic, secured his support after supporting his presidency.

Democrats also saw some expected but important victories of the Senate. New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez will win re-election by winning republican businessman Bob Hugin. And Fox News's decision-making office also predicts that West Virginia's Democratic senator Joe Manchin will win his re-election, repressing Republican Prosecutor General Patrick Morrie. Manchin was the only member of his party to vote in favor of Canaan. In Michigan, Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow will win a fourth term, defeating Republican businessman John James, a veteran combat fighter who has been strongly supported by President Trump, Fox News.

Fox News's decision-making office also predicts that none of the four candidates in the Mississippi Special Session will win tonight because no one has accrued 50% of the vote. The two top finals – Republican chief Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democratic challenger Mike Espy – will face each other in elections on November 27th.

Some other key struggles remain close to the call, including the competition between Montana's official Senator Jon Tester and Democratic challenger Matt Rosendale, the state auditor. President Trump has made his mission to defeat the Tester, who helped appoint Ronny Jackson's White House doctor Torpedo Trump to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. Right now, Tester takes the lead in this fight.

In Nevada, Democrat Mr. Tzaky Rosen has a small lead over the established democratic senator Dean Heller, but it is too early to be a winner in this fight.

The Fox News Decision Desk can not yet project a winner in Arizona, where Republican Prime Minister Martha McSally is in a fierce battle with Republican Kyrsten Sinema to succeed in retirement of GOP Sen. Jeff Flake.

The Democrats were able to regain the majority in the House, reversing the basic seats. they had to get 23 for a majority. In the 10th Congressional of North Virginia, GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock is expected to lose her democratic challenger, state senator Jennifer Wexton. Comstock is widely regarded as one of the most vulnerable Republicans in Congress.

And 77-year-old Democrat Donna Shalala, who served as Health and Human Services minister under President Bill Clinton, defeated Republican rival Maria Elvira Salazar in the 27th District of Florida Congress, which has long been held by the GOP.

But two major democratic attempts to overthrow the Republican-controlled seat become short. In the 6th Kentucky Congress District, Republican Vice-President Andy Barr defeated Democrat Amy McGrath. The two had competed in a race on the neck and neck, which the Democrats saw as an opportunity to make a seat in a GOP. McGrath, the first female marine to fly a F / A-18 on a battle mission, fought on a very anti-Trump platform.

And Republican Denver Rigleeleman has defeated Democratic Lescol Cockburn to hold a closely-watched Congress seat in Virginia in the hands of the GCP.

The 5th District of Virginia's Congressional District hosts GOP Rep. Tom Garrett, who announced he would not seek re-election earlier this year amid scandals. While the region supported President Trump in 2016 with a two-digit number, the contest was close between Cockburn, a former journalist who favors Medicare-for-all, and Riggleman, a tough Republican.

Meanwhile, the Fox News Decision Desk suggests that Sens Sen. Tim Kaine in Virginia, Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and Sherrod Brown in Ohio, as well as Vermont's independent Bernie Sanders, will cruise to victory.


The Democratic and former CIA official, Abigail Spanberger, also defeated Democratic Deputy Teacher Dave Brat, who represented the 7th Congressional Region in 2014 when he was surprised by the nation, destroying the then head of the majority government, Eric Cantor.

Hamburg brought this apartment by 7 points in 2016 and had a Republican representative for almost 50 years. But the demographic change brought the game and led to Spanberger's victory.
