Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi remarks on Midterm Election results
09 November, 2018, 22:59
"It's very inappropriate. We should get along and get deals done".
Republicans successfully fended off some of the most high-profile Democratic challengers in Beto O'Rourke (Texas Senate Seat), Stacey Abrams (Georgia Governor), and Andrew Gillum (Florida Governor).
On Wednesday, both parties and the president claimed victory, even if it wasn't an easy sale. President Donald Trump said at a news conference Wednesday that he still wants the stricter work requirements.
"Overall, I think the House win for the Democrats means a solid push towards a better system of checks and balances on the president, but most importantly there was a record number of women elected last night, as well as a lot of firsts for other minorities, which means that finally Congress is going to start to look like a better representation of what America looks like", Laura Bart '19 said.
There are three reasons why the GOP did better than expected on Election Day: Trump, Trump, and Kavanaugh. The win, according to some pundits, has given the Democrats a measure of leverage and "the ability to check President Trump's power".
But races that stretched from the Mid-Atlantic to the Middle West presented potential complications for Trump's re-election bid. DeWine not only won there, but Todd also points out that GOP Rep. Jim Renacci overperformed expectations by getting 47 percent in the Senate race against Democratic incumbent (and winner) Sherrod Brown, despite being vastly outspent and being seen as a problematic candidate.

"In today's world, if you are in the middle of the road, you are road kill". In the Senate, things didn't go as smoothly for the party, with Democrats losing three seats and the Republicans expanding their majority, with more gains possible after special elections in MS and Minnesota. The same holds true for those who won in the Great Lake states.
And she has "total" confidence that she will do so - despite many newly elected House Democrats distancing themselves from her during their campaigns. With Pelosi, Hoyer, and Clyburn all aiming to move up one spot in the majority leadership ranks, that leaves open the assistant Democratic leader spot, now held by Clyburn and set to become the No. 4 ranked position under the majority.
The Democratic gains will be critical for the party heading into redistricting following the 2020 Census.

The defeat of Kobach suggests a return to the state's more moderate, practical politics of the past three decades, said Burdett Loomis, a political science professor at the University of Kansas.
"It's a return to the way our state politics have been", Loomis said.
"I didn't ask anybody for support, because I was too busy winning an election and I didn't think it was appropriate to ask members or candidates then", she said. "This is a Republican state", Loomis said. Voters are demonstrating a willingness to consider issues and candidates more thoroughly at the state level, not just their own registered party. He has taken to belittling potential Democratic rivals during his frequent political rallies to support Republican candidates, and has been building his supporter lists for almost two years.
