Republican Donald Trump elected President of the United States of America

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. Republican Ron DeSantis ousted Democratic opponent Andrew Gillum by less than one percentage point in a hotly contested race in Florida; Mike DeWine won the governorship in OH; and Republican Brian Kemp was ahead of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams by 1.6 points with 100 percent of precincts reporting.

Votes are still being counted in some areas, with 12 races too close to call in House of Representatives.

The best news for the Republicans is that they protected several of their own vulnerable chambers, including the Arizona Senate, the Iowa House, the Michigan House, the Minnesota Senate and the Wisconsin Senate. Even then, Bush gained just eight House seats and two in the Senate.

The shifts from Republican to Democrat were substantial in many of those districts. LePage governed largely by mobilizing the House minority Republican caucus to sustain a record number of 642 vetoes - more than all other ME governors combined going back to 1917 and 80 times as many as his predecessor, Baldacci. If laws were written with bipartisan support, if politicians in both parties had a say in the process and a stake in the outcome, if people all across the board politically and ideologically could find some comfort in some aspect of almost all major legislation, there would be greater respect for law and an ability to rely on its permanence.

LePage vetoed bills five times that would have expanded the state's Medicaid system to an additional 70,000 low-income Mainers. After shepherding the Affordable Care Act through Congress, she was relegated to the post of minority leader after the Republican wave in 2010. We want to do something on healthcare, they want to do something on healthcare.

Said Warren: "This resistance began with women and it is being led by women tonight". But Mr. Wallace was right in saying the Democrats' smart recruitment of military vets and moderate women helped the Democrats to flip the House.

"The one issue that Leader Pelosi and I discussed this morning where there could be a possible bipartisan agreement would be something on infrastructure, but there could be a lot of other things".

Governors - who head the executive branch in state governments - have been chosen in 36 out of 50 states.

Libby noted that often the only way the Legislature was able to extract information from LePage's administration was to use the Government Oversight Committee's subpoena powers to compel witnesses to appear before them.

He said: "I'm proud of what happened". "I expect that is going to change in a big way with the new administration". "You can't do them both", he said. That money is included in the state's current two-year budget but is not committed for the future.

Trump won OH by nine points two years ago, and DeWine's victory continued the GOP's general dominance in statewide races. The Democrats made only slight inroads in Trump country, where they tried to win back white working-class voters.

"I think the message is, figure out what you can do together and do it", McConnell said, adding that the Affordable Care Act needs to be fixed but that any effort to fix the Obama-era law would have to be done "on a bipartisan basis".

She said priorities would include expanding Medicaid, taking additional action to stem the state's ongoing opioid overdose crisis - which Gideon called a "public health emergency" - expanding the state's renewable energy policies, and addressing workforce development and student debt, among other key issues.

But Democrats have to be careful not to overplay their hand, and risk incurring backlash from voters who don't want Congress to trigger a constitutional crisis.

"I feel just fine about it", he said.

"Mainers have entrusted you with the future of our state and to represent all of the people", he said.

"I believe I've seen evidence of obstruction of justice", U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN.

Trump's rhetoric, his style and his divisiveness clearly cost the Republican Party yesterday in these suburban House districts and will complicate his prospects for re-election in two years.
