Democratic gains over GOP after midterms come with cautions

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for a Midterm Election Wins Bolster Trump’s Mandate

Waters, the top Democrat on the committee, is expected to drastically alter the course of the panel when Democrats take control of the House of Representatives in January.

Whitmer, Coyle said, she didn't shy away from sexism in the campaign while sticking to messages about key issues. Yes, the House with all its investigative and impeachment powers has fallen into the hands of his most determined foes as Democrats rode a wave of suburban anti-Trump revulsion.

"I do think they will definitely try to impeach nearly immediately", said Meadows, even though Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have downplayed that issue during the campaign.

Like the old joke about talented but turnover-prone quarterbacks, Trump keeps both teams in the game. She has earned this great honor!,' he tweeted.

Yet ascent of the California Democrat is nowhere near guaranteed.

Democrats did well on a national level with the House, much like how Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but ultimately lost the presidency, while Republicans still won in states that are important to the Electoral College. They are reluctant to shout the name "Pelosi" when the cameras zoom in during the first roll call of Congress, fearful of the attack ads that will be launched against them.

As for the House, incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi will have a hard task managing an unruly Democratic caucus with little margin for error.

Although they have not determined precisely which investigations to launch next year, Democrats are expected to scrutinise Trump administration policies on immigration, education and health care, and to examine his personal finances and potential connections to Russian Federation.

The two have reasons to cooperate.

The president also mocked Republicans who did not "embrace" him on the campaign trail, and went on to lose their election races.

"There's plenty of opportunity", Pelosi said, noting she worked productively with President George W. Bush during her last turn as speaker.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper said the overall results were "very disappointing", especially after Democrats ran good races and saw strong turnout. "We're not going to do any kind of threatening of anybody at this point", she said.

But a measure of how much bigger the overall Democratic House majority could have been is that about two dozen Republicans who won or were leading had similarly narrow margins of five points or fewer. Whoever has a majority of votes wins.

For example, Cummings and other Democratic lawmakers a year ago filed a federal lawsuit demanding disclosures of records to determine how Trump was approved by the General Services Administration to maintain the lease of the Trump International Hotel in Washington after he became president. Each is poised to move up a slot. Before the 2018 elections, one of the most dynamic new members of Congress, Massachusetts Democrat Ayanna Pressley, promised her constituents that "change is on the way". "Ya es tiempo de un cambio!" he echoed his statement in Spanish.

The Republican president also clashed repeatedly with reporters at the White House, ordering them to be quiet.

Both candidacies are a direct affront to Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, who is in line to become the whip.

"Our agenda is about making life better for working Americans".

Three others announced their runs for assistant leader, the new No. 4 post, including Rep. In an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal before his recent confirmation vote, Kavanaugh said he had misspoken because he was upset and assured the public that he would act as a fair and impartial judge.

It is from this perspective that the results look like something less than the "tremendous success" Trump boasted about on Twitter.

But, in another tweet on Wednesday, he told those candidates who avoided him to "say goodbye!" Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, whose parties lost the House in the middle of their first terms, used the defeats to recalibrate for successful re-election campaigns. Something is going on because President Donald Trump, 72, did something really unpredictable on the morning after the 2018 midterm elections: he complemented Nancy Pelosi, 78.

"But we have a lot of things in common on infrastructure".

Borick said, "We are seeing a vast increase in the percentage of women that will be within the House of Representatives".

While there have been mutters of a Democratic challenge to her leadership, no contender has emerged.

Republican leadership elections are set for next week. He said he would be happy to help "supply her the necessary votes".

"I retired him. I'm very proud of it".
