As US Speaker, Nancy Pelosi To Return As Washington's Most Powerful Woman

President Donald Trump arrives for a rally at Allen County War Memorial Coliseum

Once the new Congress is sworn in next year, the Democrats could use their new powers in the House to launch a barrage of investigations into Mr Trump and the White House. Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies any collusion.

The verdicts in the House and Senate were based on incomplete results as vote counting continued across the country and some states were still voting in a congressional election cast as an unofficial referendum on Trump.

Republicans, meanwhile, retained control of the Senate after GOP candidates unseated incumbent Democrats in IN and North Dakota and won an open seat in Tennessee.

In midterm elections two years after he won the White House, Trump and his fellow Republicans expanded their majority in the US Senate following a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race, immigration and other cultural issues. At least seven of the new members have said they won't support Pelosi in the leadership elections set to be held in late November.

All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive. Historical patterns and current polling shows the majority party, the Republicans in this case, losing seats during a midterm election. Pramila Jayapal is heading towards a landslide win in the Seventh Congressional District of Washington State against Republican Craig Keller.

The House will now be populated by a rising generation of progressive Democrats, including a record-shattering number of women, a growing group of military veterans and diversity in terms of race, ethnicity and sexual orientation.

It also reduces impacts on housing and transit with only 25,000 employees in each city versus 50,000 in one. The company had been accepting proposals for its new facility, which is expected to cost around $5 billion.

"I don't care. They can do whatever they want, and I can do whatever I want", Trump said as he deplaned in IN for his second rally of the day.

In the Senate, where Democrats were defending seats in 10 states that Trump won in 2016, Republicans ousted four incumbent Democrats: Bill Nelson in Florida, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Claire McCaskill in Missouri.

Some of the biggest Democratic stars of the campaign season were struggling. Voters agree. Two-thirds of those casting ballots said their vote was about Trump, according to preliminary exit polls posted by CNN. They also benefited from a new court-drawn map in Pennsylvania, a state where they had netted three seats with leads in two more, and courts' decisions in recent years to force minor changes to GOP gerrymanders in Florida, Virginia and North Carolina. The Republican incumbent had been branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats in a race that pointed to Trump's unpopularity among college-educated women in the suburbs.

Much virtual ink has been spilled analyzing what the effect on the Democratic Party will be of the election of a handful of Democrats who have sharply criticized Israel.

Democrats turned out to register disapproval of Trump's divisive rhetoric and policies on such issues as immigration and his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries.

From Florida to Texas to Illinois, Republican incumbents who survived reelection in 2016 even as Trump lost their districts fell decisively to Democratic challengers who linked them to the president and attacked their votes on health care and taxes past year, delivering a check-and-balance message to the president. Engel is one of Israel's most reliable supporters, of either party, in the House, and so is Lowey, who will be the most influential Democrat controlling government spending.

Maulana Samiul Haq, ‘godfather of Taliban’, killed in attack in Rawalpindi
The prime minister has sought a report and directed that an investigation be carried out immediately to find the perpetrators. Haq had emerged as one of Khan's allies since the PTI came to power in the province after elections in 2013.

Prominent Democrats, such as Representative Adam Schiff, who is in line to chair the House Intelligence Committee, have joined Republicans backing measures to clamp down on China, like legislation treating ZTE Corp and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd technology and phones as major cyber security threats.

The Senate is 14-6 Republican.

"I believe that you can have a simple vote in Congress, or it's even possible, in my opinion - this is after meeting with some very talented legal scholars - that you can do it through an executive order", Mr. Trump said last week about birthright citizenship. Some high profile senators are expected to be among that growing pool of candidates in the Democratic presidential primary.

No, they don't. It's an agenda of more taxes, more regulations, and less economic growth.
