Republicans retained control of the Senate but lost control of the House to the Democrats after Tuesday’s midterm elections.
While results were still rolling in, Tuesday night Republicans reached the 51 seats needed to maintain control of the Senate.
By midnight there were enough projected wins to secure the flip of control of the House, with a projected 229-206 majority for the Democratic Party.
President Trump Tuesday tweeted that the elections were a “tremendous success” despite the GOP losing the House, adding, “Thank you all!”
The liberal media projected a “blue wave” to come Tuesday but were sorely disappointed.
Notable wins include incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) who defeated challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Tex.), Republican businessman Mike Braun who unseated Democratic Indiana incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly, former Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) who defeated Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum for Florida governor, former Florida governor Rick Scott who ousted incumbent Democratic Florida Sen. Bill Nelson, Virginia state senator Jennifer Wexton who unseated incumbent Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock, and Democrat Joe Manchin who kept his West Virginia Senate seat.
