Democrats win control of the House in 2018 midterms, CNN projects

Bernie Sanders has been re-elected for another six-year term in the US Senate

Early in the evening, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders touted Trump's efforts during the campaign.

They could also force the President to scale back his legislative ambitions, possibly dooming his promises to fund a border wall with Mexico, pass a second major tax-cut package or carry out his hardline policies on trade.

But Mr Trump's Republicans have retained control of the US Senate.

Trump spent election night watching returns with family and friends at the White House, his shadow looming large over the results.

"Lavrov also reiterated Moscow's position that it is not meddling in US elections".

Even so, Democrats were confident, with Nancy Pelosi, the party's top leader in the House, saying "it's just a question of the size of the victory". "When you get small majority, you have the chance for a small number of people in the middle to really help shape things", he said.

As Election Day unfolded, Democrats were increasingly confident on the strength of voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates.

Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets
According to a company statement as of September 30, Boeing had 4,783 firm orders from 98 identified customers for the 737 Max. On Tuesday, Boeing issued a bulletin to all airlines and pilots who operate the 737 MAX.

Trump called Pelosi, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and several of the Republican winners. But he will have to deal with a GOP-controlled Senate, as well as President Trump's potential veto pen.

History was working against the president in the Senate: 2002 was the only midterm election in the past three decades when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats.

Regaining control of the lower chamber of Congress gives the Democrats greater sway in legislative issues, as they are expected to undermine policies pushed by the Trump administration, such as medicare and immigration reform.

All 435 seats in the House, 35 seats in the 100-member Senate and 36 of the 50 state governorships were up for grabs.

"With Democrats' leadership in the state solidified, NY can pass policies previously blocked by Republicans to expand health care coverage, address climate change, and ensure women retain the right to make their own medical decisions", Jessica Post, executive director for the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, said in a statement on Tuesday.

In Indiana, Republican Mike Braun beat Democratic incumbent Senator Joe Donnelly.

Some of the biggest Democratic stars of the campaign season were struggling. Liberal House member Beto O'Rourke became a national sensation with his underdog U.S. Senate campaign but fell short in conservative Texas to Senator Ted Cruz.

Treu and his passenger later told investigators they had been huffing from a computer keyboard cleaner they'd purchased that day. Treu and the passenger told police they had been "huffing," or intentionally inhaling chemical fumes, police have said.

Three states could elect their first African-American governors, while several others were running LGBT candidates and Muslims.

Trump also called outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan and Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Democrats have had mixed success in districts that backed former President Barack Obama and flipped to backing Trump.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) held on to that open seat in Tennessee for the Republicans, defeating Democratic contender former Gov. Phil Bredesen by a wide margin. Democrats also captured governorships in MI and IL.

In the Senate, despite Trump's deeply polarizing effect on voters, the Republicans harnessed his rock-solid popularity with hard-right voters in rural, deep-red states.

Millions of Americans voted Tuesday, and results have been projected in several races in the United States midterms, the critical first nationwide election seen as a referendum on Donald Trump's presidency. Still, Republican voters tended to be overwhelmingly supportive of the president.

While a Democratic victory was far from guaranteed, the party had been viewed as a slight favorite to win the House on Election Day.

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

Republican candidates in some of the country's most competitive races gambled by tying themselves to Trump in a bid to turn out voters.
