The Anti-Pelosi Democrats Have Started Plotting Against Her

The press conference, which initially focused on simple political topics, quickly descended into chaos after Trump was asked about his politics and the controversial issue of Russian Federation meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election (the same election that put Trump in the White Hosue).

On Capitol Hill, Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell said Democrats must decide how much "harassment" they want to pursue against Trump, while suggesting there could be limited opportunities to work across the aisle. Meanwhile, key state-level wins will give Democrats the chance to redraw districts and undo gerrymandering. He has yet to come up with a derogatory nickname for her, as he has with many of his other Democratic foes, although that could certainly change.

Those results, state by state and district by district, framed the geographic and demographic challenges for both President Donald Trump and whoever becomes the Democratic presidential nominee two years from now.

His Serve America PAC endorsed 34 House candidates in total. And Pelosi, who is expected to run for a second stint as speaker when Democrats take the House majority in January, said the party has "a responsibility to seek common ground where we can".

Several committee members have articulated tougher positions than the White House on Russia, North Korea and Saudi Arabia and urged congressional authorisation on military engagement in hot spots like Syria.

They've divvied up the names of just-elected candidates who have called for "new leadership" and are reaching out to encourage them to vote against Pelosi on the floor. By giving him an opportunity to aid the working class, the thinking seems to go, Democrats could either see their own policy agenda enacted or, in that still unlikely event, force Trump to shoot down what they expect to be broadly popular initiatives.

DeWine, the Republican attorney general and a former USA senator, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray.

Hours earlier, the president had hailed a "big victory" in the midterm election and tweeted that "now we can all get back to work and get things done!"

Midterm elections are typically hard for the party in power, but the GOP's hold on power was further weakened by an unusually large number of retirements as well as infighting between conservatives and centrists over their allegiance to Trump.

Numerous issues already have been put forward by Representative Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee. The partisan divide among male voters was much narrower.

Both candidacies are a direct affront to Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, who is in line to become the whip. It is their first majority in eight years.

The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men.

Trump's inflammatory anti-immigrant rhetoric - deemed racist by many - has recently included misinformation about a migrant caravan traveling by foot through Central America and Mexico for the US border, along with his questionable threats to upend birthright citizenship.

"I've watched Nancy Pelosi's career from the time she got there". They need to be reminded why.

Trump boasted a growing economy but campaigned aggressively in the closing days on a hardline anti-immigration message. Seventy-one percent voted Republican in 2016. But on trade policy, one of the areas most relevant for the worldwide community, Trump enjoys executive power and can set the terms regardless of whether Congress is divided or not.

Pelosi vowed to push for a range of actions to stem gun violence, including restrictions on high-capacity magazines and a measure allowing temporary removal of guns from people deemed an imminent risk to themselves or others.

Democratic incumbents easily won re-election for governor and Senate, and Democrats - aided by a court-ordered redistricting map - also flipped several House seats.

Her Congressional district in New York City is overwhelmingly Democratic: Clinton beat Trump there 77-20 in 2016 and Ms Ocasio-Cortez won with the same vote share.

Female candidates fared particularly well in an election cycle that had been billed as the Year of the Woman.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel argued today that Democrats must build an urban-suburban coalition through issues like healthcare and education and thereby prevent the President from driving a wedge between the two constituencies on other issues.

Democrats held on to vulnerable seats in Montana, New Jersey and West Virginia and ousted a Republican incumbent in Nevada, but it was cold comfort. She added that she hopes the administration will respond to requests for information voluntarily, but regarding a possible inquiry into the policy of separating families at the border, she said: "If that requires a subpoena, so be it".

McConnell eschewed further attempts to get him to respond to heated presidential rhetoric, refusing to call the migrant caravan - still hundreds of miles from the southern USA border - a "crisis", as Trump did in high profile campaign rallies created to turn out the GOP base.
