US midterm elections: Republicans are just a few votes away from retaking control of the House.
Votes are still being counted in several states. Democrats have already won control of the Senate. But a slim numerical advantage will pose immediate challenges for GOP leaders. The full scope of the party’s majority may not be clear for several more days, or weeks, as votes are counted.
Republicans fail to reach 218 seats in the House, meaning they will likely have the narrowest majority of the 21st century. It could rival 2001, when they had just a nine-seat majority, 221-212 with two independents. That’s far short of the sweeping victory Republicans predicted going into this year’s midterm elections.
The GOP will still see its power in Washington grow. Republicans will take control of House committees, giving them the ability to shape legislation. With a slim House majority, there’s potential for legislative chaos. Some blame President Donald Trump for the GOP’s underwhelming showing.
