Democrats Win Control of the House of Representatives, Republicans Take Senate
The Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives while Republicans will control the Senate, NBC News reports.
Some of the key House races that allowed NBC News to call Democratic control of the House included Minnesota (3), Colorado (6), Florida (27), New York (11), Virginia (2), Texas (32) and Missouri (11).
Republicans will hold the Senate after Sen. Tred Cruz (R-Texas) defeated his Democratic opponent Beto O’Rouke, NBC News projected.
Because the Dems now control the House and the Repubs are in control of the Senate, the Democratic party has gained new power to challenge President Trump and sets up a divided Congress until the 2020 elections.
