Democrats claimed some high-profile victories, with former professional hockey player Colin Allred defeating Pete Sessions, the chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee and leading opponent of legalized marijuana, in suburban Dallas.
President Donald Trump advocated forcefully for a handful of candidates in order to keep the GOP in control of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, and for many governors as well. But Pelosi brushed off such comparisons Tuesday, arguing that Clinton won the popular vote, and was handicapped by the Electoral College, which won't be a factor in House races.
Democrats are favoured by election forecasters to pick up the minimum of 23 House seats they need for a majority, which would enable them to stymie Trump's legislative agenda and investigate his administration. However, Democrats have said they firmly intend to govern, developing legislation about health care and a tax cut for working families instead of the uber-rich and corporations.
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. Republicans also managed to hold on to two contested Senate races. Only a handful of seats are viewed as potential pickup opportunities for Democrats, with the party hoping to flip seats in closely-watched races in states such as Arizona and Nevada, as well as longer shot attempts in Tennessee and Texas.
House Democrats could be banking on launching an investigation using the results of US Special Counsel Robert Mueller's already 18-month-old probe of allegations of Russian interference on Trump's behalf in the 2016 presidential election.
In Texas, Republican Ted Cruz Cruz beat his challenger, Democratic rising star Beto O'Rourke. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri - states Trump carried by nearly 25 percentage points on average two years ago.
Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin in West Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin won re-election.
Trump has framed the elections as a choice between law and order maintained by Republicans and an out-of-control Democratic mob, while focusing heavily on hardline immigration campaign promises, including a legally dubious pledge to end birthright citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants born in the US.
But Republicans struck back in the 100-member Senate, where they ousted at least two Democrats, in IN and North Dakota, and held on to at-risk seats in Tennessee and Texas.
It's a tale of two chambers. But Congress could not remove him from office without a conviction by a two-thirds majority in the Republican-controlled Senate.
Control of the Senate will determine whether key elements of the President's agenda will be thwarted or advanced, including judicial confirmations and executive branch appointments. The only question now is the size of his party's advantage.
All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive.
Congressional Black Caucus members have said that they might challenge Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) but Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), who typically challenges Pelosi, said he will not run for Speaker.
But in Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, lost her bid to oust to three-term Rep. Andy Barr in the Lexington-area district. In Virginia, Illinois and Florida, moderate Republicans lost.
It won't feel like the tsunami many on the left were hoping for, but a steadily rising tide is still lifting Democrats to enough victories to give them control of the House for the first time in eight years.
The partisan trenches in America are getting deeper.
You need to inundate and immerse yourself by sparring this way and I think that's what Tony Bellew has done. Even though Bellew eventually won, it shows you that he can be hurt, he can be dropped by a southpaw .
Bell has failed to sign his $14.5 million franchise tender while preserving his long-term health for a future lucrative contract. Le'Veon Bell might reap financial rewards for sitting out the entire 2018 National Football League season.
Dani Carvajal has won three Champions Leagues with Zinedine Zidane but says the best coach he's had is sacked Julen Lopetegui . Despite the disgusting start to the season, a number of Real Madrid players have come out in defense of their former boss.
The win was momentous for a number of reasons, not just that Democrats can now challenge Trump and the Republican party agenda. Republicans who charge that the Democratic Party has departed from its pro-Israel bona fides point to Tlaib and Omar as proof.
They're meant to ensure a free and open web for all, but some concerns have been raised as to their currently-vague nature. It's a delicate balancing act, but limiting some freedoms could end up creating a fairer, more open Web.
They also found some evidence for a causal effect of increased sleep duration and sleep fragmentation on breast cancer . According to Cancer Research UK, around a quarter of cases might be preventable.
It will cost them roughly $US13 million. "I'm comfortable with the alternative (to signing Harper)", Rizzo said Tuesday. Given Harper's history with the Nationals, he seems unlikely to make a deal elsewhere without first circling back.
The 178-run stand was a Northern Districts record for the sixth wicket, surpassing the 150 set by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan. Coming in at No.6 and No.7, Carter and Hampton finished with 102 and 95 respectively, as their side posted 313 in their 50 overs.
