USA president Trump shows willingness to cooperate with Democrats
- Laurence Reese
This was President Trump's victory, and he and Sen.
The area's white and vastly rural profile outside Cincinnati is part of what is expected to keep OH from springing back easily for Democrats, Hamilton County Republican Chairman Alex Triantafilou said. He rallied in these red states and brought out the reddest of votes. And the Republicans wound up ahead in several of those marquee statewide races. Davids defeated Republican incumbent Kevin Yoder to win the Kansas' 3rd Congressional District seat.
They rescued onetime rising star Sen. Ted Cruz, who the media despises. They've lost a near supermajority in the state House and three U.S. House seats.
Attorneys general often band together in challenging presidents; Republicans sued to overturn the Affordable Care Act, and Democrats have challenged President Trump on issues such as the original travel ban and easing environmental regulations. Bill Nelson loses his recount in Florida.
There's a new dominant storyline in Washington today, and it's that Donald Trump is terrified.
The Republicans did have to cope with many retirements, which in 2018 reached a high for Republicans going back at least as far as 1930.
Democrats also see bright signs in places like Nevada, once a conservative state that is now more consistently trending blue.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who made a pitch to return as speaker on Wednesday, has applauded Mr Trump's initial round of tariffs on China as a "leverage point" to negotiate fairer trade for U.S. products in the country. That was the closest thing to a national balloting we will have between 2016 and 2020. Republican Gov. Scott Walker's narrow loss in his bid for a third term left Democrats optimistic they could reclaim Wisconsin along with other traditionally blue states that Trump carried, such as MI and Pennsylvania.
Democrats last controlled the governorship and both chambers of the Legislature in 2008, during the administration of Gov. John Baldacci.
It's great that the Republicans picked up Senate seats in North Dakota, Missouri, and Indiana.

Former GOP Del. Greg Habeeb said the Richmond and Hampton Roads suburbs, as well as the outer suburbs of Northern Virginia, are battlegrounds that Republicans can win with the right candidates, tone and message.
Of the nine who did have to risk defeat, only one was in a state Trump had lost in 2016. Trump sees his influence on the Republicans' performance Tuesday as a sign that his brand is rock solid.
Soon after the press conference, Trump also dropped a bombshell by announcing that he had sacked attorney general Jeff Sessions, a move that many deem as an effort to curtail the Russian meddling probe that targets his 2016 presidential campaign. Further, Democrats had an underwhelming performance in OH, where gubernatorial nominee Richard Cordray lost and incumbent senator Sherrod Brown won by only six points against a weak Republican.
Cummings was able to issue the defiant warning after Democrats managed to seize more than 30 seats, gaining control of the House by earning more than the 23 seats need. Democrats won Senate seats in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin as well. The Republicans captured the statehouse in Alaska, where it had been held by an Independent. In Georgia, their candidate, Stacey Abrams, pointed to missing votes and allegations of voter suppression in refusing to concede. "The Democrats are the party of rigid ideology and total conformity".
It is important to remember in all this that these contests were not conducted simply to fill a scorecard, but to fill some of the most important offices in our democratic system of government.
What did we learn about these states from Tuesday's election?
The House majority will be narrow, and some tension surrounds its choice of a speaker and other officers.
