Democrats win back House, Republicans hold Senate
Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives, as the Republicans held on to the senate, in yesterdays midterms election.
Democrats won control of the U.S House of Representatives on Tuesday, riding a wave of energy generated in opposition to President Trump from his first days in office that could power opposition to him on Capitol Hill for the remainder of his term.
After a series of wins down the East Coast and throughout the Midwest, it was clear that Democrats had won the minimum 23 seats needed to capture the gavel.
It was not immediately clear how many more new members could be added to their total, since several seats in California are considered to be toss-up races and those returns will not be in until early Wednesday morning on the east coast, or perhaps later than that.
