Democrats set to retake House majority, but will go backwards in Senate

Donald Trump

Some Democrats and Trump critics have long suggested the records would show the president is not worth as much as he claims. But on the early vote, Democrats are leading in a trio of suburban districts thought to be key to the party's effort to break the GOP's super majority in the House.

All 435 seats in the House, 35 seats in the 100-member Senate and 36 of the 50 state governorships were up for grabs. In almost every state with a key contested Senate or governor's race, he has a positive approval and is over 50%, according to CNN's preliminary exit poll data.

Georgia had the most high-profile governor's race. The president also said soldiers would use lethal force against migrants who throw rocks, before later reversing himself.

Democratic Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a 2016 presidential contender, and Tim Kaine of Virginia, Hillary Clinton's vice presidential nominee in 2016, easily won re-election, news networks projected.

Rep. Barbara Comstock in the Virginia suburbs outside the nation's capital was among the most endangered Republican incumbents, branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats.

A debate about whether Trump's inflammatory rhetoric encouraged extremists erupted in the campaign's final weeks after pipe bombs were mailed to his top political rivals allegedly by a Trump supporter who was arrested and charged, and 11 people were killed in a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

"If you want to know what socialism looks like, look at Venezuela.Andrew Gillum has been clear what he wants to do with Florida and it will drive people away from Florida", said Trump.

The GOP holds the House 75-45. Marsha Blackburn triumphed in Tennessee. Backed by Trump in the Republican state, she defeated Phil Bredesen, a centrist Democrat and former governor.

While men with military backgrounds have always been recruited to run for office, this year's candidates include several female veterans. Trump had won that district handily. They included Reps. Jonathan Jordan of Jefferson, Mike Clampitt of Bryson City, Steve Ross of Burlington, Scott Stone and Andy Dulin of Charlotte, Bill Brawley of Matthews, George Cleveland of Jacksonville, Holly Grange of Wilmington, Linda Johnson of Kannapolis, Donny Lambeth and Debra Conrad of Forsyth County, Chris Malone of Wake Forest, Nelson Dollar of Cary and John Adcock of Holly Springs. Democrats would need a swing of at least 23 votes to gain control of the House.

Republicans flipped several Senate seats on Tuesday, with wins by Josh Hawley over Sen.

A record 33 of the Tuesday's matchups for Congress were women vs. women.

In south Florida, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

"Are women fired up?"

"Under President Trump's leadership, the Republican National Committee has raised more than a quarter billion dollars, fueling an extraordinary ground game geared toward defying midterm history and protecting the GOP's majorities". I don't care what they say. "And that could have long-term effects".

Democrats, meanwhile, have beat their drum on health care.

"This is only just the beginning", said Schriock, president of Emily's List.
