As of Wednesday, voters were on track to send at least 100 women to the House, surpassing the previous record of 84. The majority party in the House controls nearly all of the subpoena power and other investigative tools. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former Bernie Sanders organizer who won an upset primary victory over a senior House Democrat, will also head to Congress. "This was not a split decision election". On one hand, his tireless campaigning and the intensity of his support contributed to an outcome far less damaging to his administration than it might have been. Fueled by a steady diet of chocolate, she crisscrossed 30 cities in a 31-day rush aimed at boosting Democratic candidates.

Nadler has said any impeachment effort must be based on evidence of action to subvert the Constitution that is so overwhelming it would trouble even the president's supporters.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old Hispanic activist who won a surprising primary victory against a 10-term white incumbent, is the youngest woman elected to Congress. Ayanna Pressley, a 44-year-old member of the Boston City Council who scored a similar upset win, is the first black woman elected to Congress from MA.

"Regardless of the result. we believe the two governments and the two peoples all want to maintain the sound and steady development of bilateral relations because we believe it is in the best interests of the global community", Hua said. However, the historical significance of this evening is not lost on me. "I literally mean 'historic, ' in the sense of history".

We can tell a little bit of his probable leanings from the way that he and his administration conducted the closing days of the campaign, leaning in on a friendly Senate map while abandoning a House fight which most political observers wrote off. Trump will declare himself the victor of the night and the savior of a Senate that was never in real danger of turning Democratic because he campaigned for winners in states that had voted for him (never mind the Democratic survivor in West Virginia, for example).

Women also contested governor's races across the country.

Democrats, playing catch-up after a net loss of 13 governorships and more than 900 state legislative seats during the eight-year Obama administration, fielded their largest slate of legislative candidates in more than three decades. The rest of the 51 GOP members had years yet to run on their six-year terms, so in effect four of every five Republicans in the Senate already had their tickets to the 116th Congress.

President Donald Trump has slapped punitive tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese exports to the USA and threatened billions more.

Despite all the hype surrounding Gillum, he failed to gain as many votes as his senatorial counterpart, incumbent Democrat Sen.

While Trump retains broad power over national security and US foreign policy, the midterm election result exposes him to congressional investigations that could reverberate beyond American borders.

Moreover, a record number of women also won races across the U.S., and candidates of colour and LGBT people broke barriers.

In Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams was seeking to become the first black woman to be elected governor of a US state. "Now, senator will do".

Democrats could also look into businesses in the Trump family's business empire - notably the 18 trademarks that China has granted in recent months to companies linked to Trump and his daughter Ivanka. Tammy Baldwin held off a challenge from Republican Leah Vukmir, but her fellow Democrats Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Claire McCaskill of Missouri were defeated by their Republican opponents.

Pelosi, who hopes to return as speaker when the new Democratic majority takes over in January, said committee chiefs would decide how to proceed and make their recommendations to the Democratic caucus.

In a Wednesday morning tweet, Trump wrote, "In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats".

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Maryland Democrat poised to take charge of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to The Associated Press that he intends to use the panel as "a check on the executive branch - not merely for potential criminal violations, but for much broader concerns, such as conflicts of interest, emoluments violations and waste, fraud and abuse".
