The Democrats retain control of the US Senate
On Sunday morning, the Democratic Party won the seat it needed to retain control of the Democrats US Senate, It was a crucial victory for Joe Biden’s continuation of the presidency, local media reported.
Four days after the midterm elections, which disappointed the Republicans, according to American television channels, the Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada was declared the winner of the candidacy supported by ex-President Donald Trump.
Her re-election will bring the number of Democrats elected to the Senate to 50 out of 100, allowing Biden’s party to take control of the Senate, with the likely vote going to Vice President Kamala Harris. The new elections expected in Georgia at the beginning of December did not change the outcome. The Democrats can still win a seat in Georgia, where a second round takes place on December 6, but that will not affect the result.
The Democratic Party is on the right and the Republicans are on the left
The count is still ongoing in the House of Representatives. It appears Republicans are closer to control, albeit by a simple majority separated by just seven seats. Of the 218 seats needed to win, Republicans have won 211 so far, while Democrats have won 205 seats so far.
On Tuesday, Americans went to the polls to replace all members of the House of Representatives with 435 seats, a third of the Senate with 35 and 36 state governors.
While the midterm elections, which are organized two years after the presidential election, often represent a “punitive vote” for the existing government in the United States!
It is reported that after a fierce bipartisan blue-red campaign focused on inflation and price hikes as well as fuel, abortion and other issues, Republicans were confident of stripping Biden of his majority in Congress, especially as his popularity waned.
But the Democratic Party managed to trim losses somewhat, better than expected, and prevented former President Donald Trump from unleashing a “broad flood” in Congress.
