"I'm voting for candidates that I believe have the capacity to unite people rather than divide".
The outcome of some of those races are still up in the air.
Trump had noted the energy as he wrapped up a punishing schedule of rallies around the country that were meant to boost Republican candidates - and his own brand heading towards reelection in 2020. But they may be feeling less confident in some other key states where Democrats clawed back this week. "So much of what the House can do is not through writing a bill that will have to be agreed to by the Senate and signed by the president".
Democrats will pick up between seven to nine House seats in this region, and while they came up short in the Iowa governor's race, they now control three of the four House seats there.
According to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, Democrats captured 323 Republican-held legislative seats across the country.
Republicans will be aiming to take those back in two years. Six of them, including Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania and Jason Crow of Colorado, said they would call for new leadership in Congress if they were elected, adding to a growing faction of members who oppose Pelosi's speakership bid. Trump didn't win by turning out a new segment of disaffected voters as much as Hillary Clinton lost by failing to turn out Democrats. "I just can't stand Donald Trump and those around him". It's not a tossup. He also said he'd consider any Democratic proposal for a middle-class tax cut "even if it means some adjustment", including raising corporate taxes.
The Democrats' wish list includes hearings advancing alternatives to White House policies on climate change, refugees and migration, according to a Democratic aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the plans more frankly. More than 30 million Americans voted early, before November 6, in what experts have called an historic voter turnout. Eighty-six percent of those supporting Democratic candidates backed stricter gun laws, along with 34 percent of those who supported Republicans. "We call it shaking the snow globe", Sena said.
"Indeed it is a good morning for Senate Republicans", the Kentucky Republicans told reporters. The Republican incumbent had been branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats in a race that pointed to Trump's unpopularity among college-educated women in the suburbs. Republicans' heavy hand in drawing district boundaries (Michigan is seen as one of the most politically gerrymandered states) was too much to overcome, he said. But even with statewide losses in MI and Wisconsin on Tuesday, he argued there were still encouraging signs for the GOP and Trump in the Midwest.
Among governorships, Democrats netted seven, including big states such as MI and IL and Wisconsin, where incumbent Gov. Scott Walker was ousted after two terms.
Todd called OH "kind of an undersung Republican story".
So far, though, no one has mounted a serious direct challenge to Pelosi, and some are reluctant to take on the first female speaker after an election that brought a record number of women to the polls and to the House.
It also doesn't appear to give the White House the power to intervene.
Mr Trump hailed "tremendous success" and an "incredible day" for his party in Tuesday's elections. His take-no-prisoners approach troubled many Republicans seeking to appeal to moderate voters in suburban House districts, but Trump prioritized base voters in the deep-red states that could determine the fate of the Senate.
Mallory McMorrow, a first-time Democratic candidate from Royal Oak who flipped a GOP state Senate seat, said she was motivated to run for office after seeing a viral video of students at Royal Oak Middle School chanting "build the wall" after the 2016 election, mirroring the language at Trump campaign rallies. By giving him an opportunity to aid the working class, the thinking seems to go, Democrats could either see their own policy agenda enacted or, in that still unlikely event, force Trump to shoot down what they expect to be broadly popular initiatives.
Both Texas and Georgia could be interesting to watch in the coming presidential cycles. In Wisconsin, both Clinton (-238,000) and Trump (-5,000) underperfomed 2012's results.
Florida did what it always does, delivering races as close as any in the country.
And Pelosi, during a news conference that was delayed because of Trump's lengthy remarks, said she had worked productively with President George W. Bush when she was speaker a decade ago on taxes and other issues, and she welcomed the chance to do so again with Trump.
O'Rourke noted that women favored Democratic candidates in congressional matchups by 19 points. If he wants to be re-elected, he will have to win over more suburban Republicans and independents. Everytown for Gun Safety, a group founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, pledged $30 million for this year's elections and continued to put new money into competitive races in the final days.
