The columnist asserts, "A bigger wave would have been nice, but control of the House was the Big Enchilada of this election-and Democrats grabbed it. Trump's life is about to change in ways he will not like". Already the only woman to have held the job, she would also become one of the few lawmakers to reclaim the gavel after losing it. It was a role reversal from just days ago, when he warned voters of her "radical" agenda.

In the states of Texas, Florida and Georgia white women supported Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and for governor.

At her news conference, she said Democrats would seek compromise with the president, but "must stand our ground". Factions are going to be able to read into it what they want. Trump has said he hasn't released them because his taxes are under audit by the IRS - even though experts and IRS officials say such audits don't bar taxpayers from releasing their returns. Exit polling showed that voters, like Democratic candidates, considered health care the number one issue and they turned out in record numbers.

The two have reasons to co-operate. Both beat Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup. "They're facing some of the toughest times we've had for a long time".

But Pelosi allies say Tuesday night's results prove those attacks against her are ineffective, and she could still become speaker even without the support of the minority who oppose her. So be it. By acting affirmatively on issues of national and global effect, Democrats will set the stage for battles over ideas rather than personalities.

Around the rest of the state, Republicans held on to their majorities in the state House and state Senate, and two other Republican congressmen from around the state narrowly survived stiff challenges. "The fact is we'd like to work together". But becoming speaker requires a majority of the full House, 218 votes, and her slim majority - now at 222 - leaves her little cushion. Each is poised to move up a slot.

Republicans must also loudly promote their success with two of the country's most enduring, important issues: the economy and national security. "Ya es tiempo de un cambio!" he echoed his statement in Spanish. Such a tone will continue to alienate the sorts of voters who entrusted the House to the Democrats. Robocalls into some Southern states appealed to racism in messages against African-American candidates. But it began the journey that will turn our country right side up. "Being in an environment where there are so many outlets for discussion and education is such a gift", Zuk said. Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa., was re-elected to the House. "But the math is very hard for her, and it's inescapable".

Todd, the GOP strategist who co-wrote The Great Revolt: Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics, said he is concerned about Pennsylvania's prospects in 2020.

Prepaid Unlimited Plan From Verizon Is Now Cheaper, But There's A Catch
T-Mobile's special limited-time prepaid plan includes the same caveats as other similar plans in the Uncarrier's portfolio. Verizon's prepaid plan with unlimited talk, text, and LTE data then dropped to $65 from $75.

He acknowledged that both DeSantis and Scott did well at reaching out to Hispanic voters - a possible struggle for Trump in two years if he keeps doubling down on fear of immigrants and revoking birthright citizenship.

"I remember when we tried it in the late '90s". Ryan said. "What are we doing to protect the majority makers?"

Senate Republicans are still in control and stuck with Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka.

By law, the leaders of tax-writing committees in the House and Senate can obtain tax returns and related information from the Internal Revenue Service.

This alternative has been outlined by progressive leaders who were elected over the past several cycles and have taken leadership positions in the Congressional Progressive Caucus: Ro Khanna from California, Pramila Jayapal from Washington, and Mark Pocan from Wisconsin.

"For the month of September we tabled in the LC, the Caf, and the Library to help register people to vote before the Pa. deadline". She added that she has received a "tremendous" response and said she is "100%" confident she will win the speakership. "It's what you can do". The prevailing attitude on Capitol Hill and among farm groups, Bleiberg said, is: "You've gotten this far".

"I do think there's new energy" on gun issues, even before the California assault late Wednesday night and an October 27 shooting that killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue, said Kris Brown, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
