Latest projections suggest that the Republican Party will beat the Democrats and retain its majority in the US House of Representatives.
The NBC and ABC have predicted that the Republicans will retain the majority of the 435 seats chamber. An interesting aspect is that the presidential party has been in control of this house since 2010.
Also, they have taken control of Senate that the Democrats were so eager to breakthrough.
The night started with a dramatic win of the Senate. Before long enough, the Republican Party had already won 34 of the 100 seats.
The Democrats have only won one seat in the Senate, thanks to Tammy Duckworth, a double amputee Iraq war veteran. He takes the position held by Mark Kirk’s place in Illinois. In a past interview, Mr Kirk had mocked Duckworth’s Thai heritage but issued an apology after pressure mounted on him.
As they take over more seats previously held by the Democrats, the republicans still retain most of their seats:
Some of these are Indiana, North Carolina, Arizona and Florida.
In Arizona, John McCain got his sixth term and probably his last.
Paul Ryan, who had endorsed Donald Trump but distanced himself from him was re-elected to the House of Representatives in Wisconsin.
History has also been made with Illhan Omar becoming the first Somali-American legislator. She escaped Somalia’s civil war at a tender age with her family. They stayed for 4 years in a Kenyan refugee camp before moving to the United Sates.
It is very vital that the next President have dominance in the Congress because that is what will help him change plans into law.
