Let the subpoenas begin!
The US is no longer a one-party country.
Nancy Pelosi is back as Speaker of the House.
The shenanigans by Georgia's attorney-general in suppressing the vote were successful in keeping Stacy Abrams from winning, and we all know how crooked Florida is, so it is no surprise that Gillam lost. At this time, the Nelson -- Scott contest is still too close to call.
Beto O'Rourke gave Ted Cruz a damn good scare. It is astounding that the contest was so close in a state that is so red. It would have been like seeing Senator Elizabeth Warren come close to losing in blue, blue, Massachusetts to an young upstart red candidate. Completely unimaginable. Good going Beto! You did very, very well.
And congrats to the Democrats who picked up the governorships! The Dems gained SEVEN; the Republicans lost seven! Well done
Kobach's gone, Scott Walker's gone, a record number of women are in the House, Adam Schiff now has subpoena power, and Maxine Waters gets to look at Trump's tax returns. It was a pretty good night!
BTW: House means Mueller is protected. I’ll take it!
GOOD GOING, KANSAS!
100 WOMEN IN THE HOUSE!
New York Times:
Propelled by an unusually high turnout that illustrated the intensity of the backlash against Mr. Trump, Democrats claimed at least 26 House seats on the strength of their support in suburban and metropolitan districts that were once bulwarks of Republican power but where voters have recoiled from the president’s demagoguery on race. Early Wednesday morning Democrats clinched the 218 House seats needed to take control. There were at least 15 additional tossup seats that had yet to be called.
HAUNT #45'S DREAMS, MAXINE! LOL!
