GOP Maintains Control of Congress

GOP Maintains Control of Congress

GOP has the House, Senate, and White House.

The GOP managed to maintain control of Congress after elections on Tuesday, even though it lost Kelly Ayotte (NH) in the Senate.

The Senate had everyone on edge, with outside groups pouring millions into races since the Democrats only needed five more seats to grab the majority. The GOP lost Ayotte’s seat to Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire and Mike Kirk’s seat in Illinois to Tammy Duckworth. The Democrats failed to take seats away from Sen. Richard Burr (NC), Sen. Roy Blunt (MO), Sen. Pat Toomey (PA), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), or Sen. Ron Johnson (WI). Former Senator Evan Bayh attempted to win back his former seat, but Todd Young blew him away in Indiana.

GOP Senate

The Democrats needed to gain 30 seats to regain the House, which didn’t cause to much worry among the GOP. But the Democrats failed since it only gained five seats, falling short of expectations. In Florida, Stephanie Murphy defeated Rep. John Mica while Charlie Crist defeated Rep. David Jolly.
