Lara Trump: Vote Red to Keep President's Success Going

A number of races are so close that it may not be possible to declare a winner on election night leaving control of the House and Senate up in the air See state and nationwide election results here

Trump campaigned aggressively in those states.

Democrats struck first in the battle for the House of Representatives, with Jennifer Wexton ousting incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock in a suburban Virginia district outside Washington, according to data provider DDHQ and USA media outlets. Now they must defend President Trump's hard-line rhetoric and policy on issues like immigration and trade, despite tensions within the party over those same issues.

Democrats are drawing strength from women and college-educated voters, who swung decidedly against Trump since his election. IN is Trump country (and the home state of Vice President Mike Pence), but Donnelly is slightly ahead in most recent polls. Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature.

Mr. Trump had vacillated on how much blame he would shoulder for ceding the House.

The House of Representatives will flip to the control of the Democrats while Trump's Republicans have retained control over the Senate.

Just six Republicans were up for re-election, all but one of them ran in safely Republican states.

Daniel McAdams, executive director at the Ron Paul Institute, agrees, noting that the Democrats "ran a terrible campaign" under the slogan "Trump is racist, vote for me". Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota could stump on protecting farmers while Joe Manchin in West Virginia promised new health protections for coal miners.

Given this composition of the electorate, not surprisingly, more voters reported having a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party (49 percent) than the Republican Party (43 percent).

In that state, Republican Mike Braun was declared as the victor over Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly.

By election day, FiveThirtyEight gave Clinton a 71% chance of winning the election, leaving Trump with a 29% chance of winning.

Voting finished in IN and Kentucky, as well as in most of Florida, Georgia and Virginia. Also, more said they showed up at the polls to express opposition than did those who said they were casting a ballot to support him. "If you want more caravans, if you want more crime, vote Democrat tomorrow".

While the occupant of the White House is typically central to midterm elections, Trump has worked especially hard to make this one about him. "They are not going to put their money where their mouths are because they know there's nothing there", he told RT. That included gun owners and military veterans - and a lot of female candidates.

All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive.

It means Democrats will have to bridge the demands of a party that has grown to embrace progressives, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is expected to win in a safely Democratic district in NY, while electing moderates like Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania, who won a special election earlier this year and is favored to win Tuesday in a reconfigured district.

Ms Pelosi is expected to seek the top job of House speaker, a post she held for four years beginning in 2007.

Pelosi has been criticized by a vocal group inside the caucus as being out of touch with her changing party and unwilling to provide opportunities to newer members.

The overall predicted outcome, however, remains the same since our last handicapping on October 22: The Democrats are poised to gain ground in the nation's 36 governors' races. Chris Van Hollen, Maryland Democrat and chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Pelosi has vowed to pass campaign finance reform regulations and launch investigations into the Trump administration immediately.

Those lawmakers and others have outlined a legislative agenda to lower drug costs, beginning with a controversial proposal that would fulfill a Trump promise from the 2016 campaign trail: allowing Medicare to negotiate for drug prices.

Instead, he was the first to fall.

Also likely taking the stage during this hour: Mitt Romney, who is expected to easily win a US Senate seat from Utah.

Ms. Comstock would be the first GOP casualty of the night, losing her district in suburban Washington. "On the substantive things beyond the manufactured outrage of all of the Kavanaugh and all of this sort of thing, in real substantive areas, there really is very little if any difference between the two parties", he said.

As the one of the most volatile midterm elections in USA history wound down, the Democrats pulled closer to the 218 seats needed for a majority.

The slim playing field for Republicans was even more surprising given the state of the economy. "It's an awakening of the Democratic Party".
