Term elections 2018: Trump offers bipartisanship with caveat

House Ways and Means Committee top Democrat Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts criticizes the Republican tax plan during a news conference in the Rayburn Room in November 2017

In Virginia's 10th, Democratic lawyer and state senator Jennifer Wexton beat two-term Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock in a district that went for Clinton over Trump in the 2016 presidential election, 52 percent to 42 percent.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Maryland Democrat poised to take charge of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to The Associated Press that he intends to use the panel as "a check on the executive branch - not merely for potential criminal violations, but for much broader concerns, such as conflicts of interest, emoluments violations and waste, fraud and abuse".

Despite losing, O'Rourke's campaign was the best showing by a Democrat in Texas in 20 years and looks certain to be a front runner for the Democrat ticket in three years' time.

Ms Pelosi, who is favoured to pick up the House speaker's gavel, promised her party would serve as a counterweight to the White House. There was the primary victory of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in NY, who is now headed to the House, and the avowed opposition to Pelosi as speaker from candidates trying to wrest control from Republicans in swing districts.

Neal and Representative Bill Pascrell, who is set to chair the Ways and Means trade subcommittee, are promising to haul Trump's top trade lieutenants into hearings not only to explain their strategy on China but also on future trade negotiations with the European Union, Japan and Britain.

Democrats' takeover of the House in January will allow them to force administration officials to testify and provide documents.

He has quietly (not by his design) achieved many of his campaign goals despite being sucked into constant warfare with a baiting media and leading Democrats aligned with #NeverTrumpers who will #NeverbeHappy due to their belief that a heathen has invaded the White House.

The suburbs are how Democrats were able to take back the House, but they ultimately still fell short in targeted House seats in North Carolina - another state Trump was able to win after it had gone for Obama in 2008 - and OH, which Trump won solidly after Obama carried it twice.

The party adopted a trio of policy goals which proved favourable: reducing health care costs, creating jobs through infrastructure investment, and offering a reform package to clean up politics. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri - states Trump carried by nearly 25 percentage points on average two years ago.

Midterm lessons: five key takeaways from the election results
And it seems highly unlikely any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads. He added, "Two can play that game!" They took the House, opening the way for a check and balance on a volatile President.

Matteo Guendouzi slots into midfield with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey , while Danny Welbeck is up top. Danny Welbeck looks set to miss a large chunk of the season after breaking his ankle last night.

Whitaker was campaign chairman for Mueller witness
Bipartisan bills to protect Mueller from politically motivated removal have been introduced in the House and Senate. In addition to Trump Jr, targets could include former campaign consultant Roger Stone.

"The White House needs to take us seriously, and if they don't, we are going to make sure they take us seriously", Engel said in an interview with Post columnist Josh Rogin on Wednesday. We have the Senate, the Supreme Court and the White House. Meanwhile, New York Democrat Max Rose's upset win over Rep. This helped Republicans, as older voters skew more Republican.

This alternative has been outlined by progressive leaders who were elected over the past several cycles and have taken leadership positions in the Congressional Progressive Caucus: Ro Khanna from California, Pramila Jayapal from Washington, and Mark Pocan from Wisconsin.

The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men. In the 115th Congress, the Republicans controlled the House 235 to 193 and the Senate 51 to 47 with 2 Independents (both of whom caucus with the Left).

He denied using a migrant caravan making its way to the U.S. border through Mexico to whip up fear ahead of Tuesday's election to win votes.

Fresh off re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives, Peter Welch refrained from endorsing Nancy Pelosi for House speaker, saying House Democrats must "decentralize" the power of the speaker's office. Voters scored Trump positively on the economy and for standing up "for what he believes in". Trump won its 20 electoral votes by about 44,000 votes as he toppled Hillary Clinton's "blue wall". But on trade policy, one of the areas most relevant for the worldwide community, Trump enjoys executive power and can set the terms regardless of whether Congress is divided or not. Just who that Democrat will be though, is not exactly clear. You can't have one or the other - you've got to have both. She could return a number of his voters back to the Democratic Party by backing Trump on issues that used to be democratic issues.

Female candidates fared particularly well in an election cycle that had been billed as the Year of the Woman.

'Along with this the Republicans increased their majority in The Senate.

The traditional Democratic formula of winning big in the state's largest urban areas and staying close in swing counties hasn't been working out lately.

Democrats cruised to easy victories up and down the ballot, as Tim Walz won an open governor's race by more than 11 percentage points over Republican Jeff Johnson. While exit polls are typically conducted in person on the big day, she said interviewers increasingly go to polling stations to capture early voter opinions and call up respondents to follow up over the phone.
