"We always knew these races are going to be close", said Rep. Katherine Clark of MA, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts.

Trump, who campaigned aggressively in the last several weeks, expressed satisfaction over the results and described this as tremendous success.

The results make things harder for Democrats as they look to taking another shot at the Senate in 2020, as they're now staring at needing to net least four seats for control.

Sanders' interview came before Democrats were projected to win the House, and at that time pointed out that the races were still early. Contributor Stephanie Ruhle said Trump's tax loopholes are immoral and below the office of the presidency, but said Trump likes to suggest it's "clever" how he games the system. But being elected as speaker in January requires the majority of the whole House - 218 votes.

The GOP Senate victory was magnified because Democrats stood a solid chance of wresting control of the House from Republicans.

In her victory speech in Washington DC, Pelosi said the party would use its newly won majority to pursue a bipartisan agenda for a country.

Pelosi was in a celebratory mood Tuesday evening, declaring that "tomorrow will be a new day in America".

NBC, ABC News and CNN projected Democrats would take control of the chamber even as the outcome in number of competitive races remains unclear.

Millions of Americans voted Tuesday, and results have been projected in several races in the USA midterms, the critical first nationwide election seen as a referendum on Donald Trump's presidency. But he will have to deal with a GOP-controlled Senate, as well as President Trump's potential veto pen.

Democrats Ilhan OImar and Rashida Tlaib are also expected to make history in Minnesota and MI respectively as the first Muslim women elected to Congress.

For many Democrats, whether in the Capitol or on the campaign trail, the issue of impeachment is seen as a nuisance and a distraction from more serious issues. "Decent health insurance should be a right". "We believe that the economy should work for everyone, not just those at the top", Perez said.

In midterm elections two years after he won the White House, Trump and his fellow Republicans expanded their majority in the U.S. Senate following a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race, immigration and other cultural issues.

Most of those gains came via executive action, however, and the GOP Congress' failures to ban late-term abortion, repeal Obamacare, or defund Planned Parenthood have been pro-lifers' biggest source of frustration. Thirty-five of the 100 Senate seats went to polls. Along with Sherrod Brown, a pro-labor lawmaker re-elected in OH, the four are considered potential 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.

If Mueller gets the axe, Democrats could claim that it's obstruction of justice and impeach Trump over it. Sessions usually does not respond to the President's criticism, but he has at times pushed back.

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

Critics, including the Democrats, accused Trump of employing racist and xenophobic rhetoric that incited violence, a charge he and many of his fellow Republicans rejected.

"Most American voters have strong views about Trump, whether they support or oppose him", says Tama.

"In this election, they sought to energise groups that Clinton did not: young voters, Latinos, African Americans and infrequent voters", the daily said. But the GOP gained ground in the Senate and preserved key governorships, beating back a "blue wave" that never fully materialized.

A turbulent election season that has tested President Donald Trump's slash-and-burn political style against the strength of the Democratic resistance comes to a close as Americans cast ballots in the first national election of the Trump era.

The Democrats also won some of the high-profile governor's race including Kansas, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota.
