They bumped off three of the Democratic senators who won in Republican territory in 2012: Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Claire McCaskill in Missouri, and Joe Donnelly in Indiana.

House Democrats had a big night on Tuesday, wresting control of the lower chamber from the GOP by picking up a net of 30 new seats.

Republican businessman Mike Braun also beat the Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly in the battleground state of in. where Trump won by 20 percentage points back in 2016. He was quick to distance himself from losing GOP House members who had been critical of his heated rhetoric, citing Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo and Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman, among others.

While heavily involved in candidate fundraising for Democrats to "Break the Majority", the governor offered a low-key response Wednesday to the election results. David Perdue (R-GA), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Thom Tillis (R-NC) could be vulnerable as well in GOP-leaning but not safely Republican states.

Evers narrowly defeated Republican Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday, setting up divided government in Wisconsin for the first time since 2008. "The most House Republican retirements in 88 years - 43 House Republicans retired".

Beyond that, LePage made the Legislature's work more hard by often refusing to allow members of his Cabinet or other top administration officials to provide testimony to legislative committees.

After serving as the state's attorney general, Democrat Janet Mills will become Maine's first female governor. He has stalled implementation of expansion - which voters approved at the ballot box in November 2017 - by vetoing funding and taking legal action. "We should just go about our own business", the paper said. "I don't think we'll have any scattershot freelancing in terms of this".

There are reports the Democrats on the House Ways and Means committee are planning to formally request the President's tax returns. Almost two-thirds of voters said Trump was a reason for their vote, according to VoteCast. He said the era of a state government that is in constant partisan gridlock or dysfunction because of a combative and often hostile governor was about to come to a close. 'I also want to focus on uplifting the American people and improving their day-to-day lives, from lowering prescription drug prices to ensuring access to affordable and quality healthcare to expanding funding for the opioid epidemic'. China says it handles all trademark applications equally, but House committees could probe whether Beijing can exploit the Trump family's substantial intellectual property holdings in China to its political or diplomatic advantage.

ASSOCIATED PRESS The nation's federal courts are going to look a lot different by the time these two are done with them. At the top of the list was funding Medicaid expansion and keeping in place a more than $160 million state boost to public school funding. The state probably will be hotly contested in two years, but seems to lean Republican.

"We're going to see a huge field, but the big question will be whether they learn lessons from the midterms because I think the electorate was trying to tell us something loudly and clearly", Matt Bennett of Third Way, a centrist think tank, said in an interview.

Sen. Troy Jackson, D-Allagash, the current Senate minority leader and a likely candidate for Senate president, echoed Libby's sentiments in a news release early Wednesday. And having fulfilled that function, this election is likely to fill Washington and many a state capital with rancor and wrangling for many months to come. Gradually an expanded Medicaid program is becoming a national policy. "It's destroying the effectiveness of Congress", Welch said.

"Under (a Mills) administration we will see this dysfunction go away and a true rebuilding of the executive branch and their ability to function in concert with the Legislature", Gideon said.

In light of the importance of Sino-US relations, it is the common wish of farsighted people from the US to maintain a healthy and stable development of the relationship, Hua said at a daily news briefing.

LePage issued a prepared statement congratulating all the winners of Tuesday's elections.

The prevailing attitude on Capitol Hill and among farm groups, Bleiberg said, is: "You've gotten this far. In addition, I specifically wish Governor-Elect Janet Mills well in her new role". The results would be officially declared tonight.
