House Democrats came out victorious on Tuesday - winning back control of the chamber and paving the way for additional oversight of the Trump administration.

"If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level", Trump wrote.

Simply put, if Republicans swept every Senate seat in the states President Trump won and Democrats won every Senate seat in the states Hillary Clinton won, the GOP would have a filibuster-proof 60 votes in the Senate.

Comparing how many of each party's women candidates won their seats, the Democratic women were more successful, particularly in the Senate and House races. House Speaker Sara Gideon, D-Freeport, who won re-election to her House District 48 seat with almost 80 percent of the vote, said Democrats believed they would hold 89 seats once the final tallies are in.

Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations, the FBI supplemental background investigation could not find supporting and corroborating evidence to back the claims, and Republicans accused Democrats of treating the nominee unfairly.

Senate majority leader tells reporters that the president's midterm rallies had a positive impact on the outcome.

The Democratic sweep should end an era of highly charged partisan discord that was dominated by outgoing Republican Gov. Paul LePage and his prolific use of the veto.

And she has "total" confidence that she will do so - despite many newly elected House Democrats distancing themselves from her during their campaigns.

Speaking with CNN's Chris Cuomo later Thursday night, Pelosi also stressed that bipartisan legislation would "save many lives".

LePage vetoed bills five times that would have expanded the state's Medicaid system to an additional 70,000 low-income Mainers.

Democrats and Mills, the state's attorney general, campaigned largely on access to affordable health care, and Mills has vowed to enact the Medicaid expansion during her first days in office.

Pennsylvania's Conor Lamb, whose district voted for Mr Trump by two points in 2016, said he did not wish to go after the president's tax returns.

He added that the broken sensor from the Bali-Jakarta flight would be sent to the manufacturer in Chicago for further examination. To avoid having the problem repeat, pilots may deactivate the stabilizer trim system, according to The Air Current's explanation.

Hoyer plans to run for majority leader, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday, which would keep him in the No. 2 position.

"The single reason we don't have more women in office is traditionally because not enough women want to run", Dew Steele said.

"Well, I'd like to be president", said. "Mia Love gave me no love", he said.

Hours later, Vermont Sen. Republicans already vote in lockstep to confirm all of them ― including the two pro-abortion rights GOP senators, Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine), who have voted for piles of anti-abortion judges.

The big story coming out of Tuesday's midterm elections is how totally the news media missed the issue of what waves were building.

Gideon said her new caucus, which includes 49 women and 40 men, was very much aligned with Mills and the incoming governor's agenda.

He called himself "a great moral leader", and, answering another question, said he has never used racist remarks.

Democrats who want new leadership have been whispering about it for weeks, and on Wednesday, several Pelosi opponents announced their intent to run for the top posts.

"Under (a Mills) administration we will see this dysfunction go away and a true rebuilding of the executive branch and their ability to function in concert with the Legislature", Gideon said.

An opponent to Pelosi's bid has yet to officially emerge, but on Tuesday night, Rep. Tim Ryan, Democrat of OH, said, "a lot of people will be surprised about who is thinking about doing something".

LePage issued a prepared statement congratulating all the winners of Tuesday's elections. "In addition, I specifically wish Governor-Elect Janet Mills well in her new role".

The three remaining Senate races were either still tallying precinct reports or the results were still too close to officially call.
