Michigan Democrat Tlaib and the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party's nominee Omar will secure their respective seats in strongly Democratic districts following primary victories earlier this year.

Democrats will hold at least 21 seats in the 35-seat Senate and appeared poised to take at least 81 seats in the 151-seat House, with some results still pending in a handful of races, and others were still too close to call.

The much-mentioned "blue wave" broke on the state Capitol on November 6, sending the Democrats a three-seat advantage in the 35-member state Senate and more power in the state House.

"Every Coloradan, whether you are a Democrat, Independent or Republican, has reason to celebrate", state Sen. Vos said he wanted to discuss it with Senate Republican Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who was meeting with GOP senators on Thursday to elect leaders. It may be that the state leans slightly Democratic, but it's not hard to imagine President Trump outperforming Scott Walker by more than 1 point, especially against a left-wing Democratic nominee.

Hoyer plans to run for majority leader, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday, which would keep him in the No. 2 position. Libby said Democrats would use their newfound power to focus on pocketbook issues, including property taxes, the cost of prescription drugs and student debt relief.

The historic Arizona Senate race between Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Rep. Martha McSally has still not been called hours after polls closed. He said the era of a state government that is in constant partisan gridlock or dysfunction because of a combative and often hostile governor was about to come to a close. Schiff, Jerry Nadler of New York, Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Sen. "The Democrats are the party of rigid ideology and total conformity". At the top of the list was funding Medicaid expansion and keeping in place a more than $160 million state boost to public school funding. He's got a ready-made explanation for why he can't get anything done in the next two years - and a pitch for what needs to change in the next election.
