‘Blue wave’ fizzles as Republicans grow Senate majority, lose House
Republicans expanded their Senate majority while losing control of the House of Representatives Tuesday, limiting President Donald Trump’s options for pursuing a pro-life agenda for the remainder of his first term.
Republicans currently have a two-vote Senate majority and a 235-193 House majority. Nine GOP and 26 Democratic seats were up for election in the Senate, and 91 GOP and 22 Democrat in the House of Representatives. Multiple news organizations have projected the overall results for both chambers of Congress.
