This is a thread to discuss the results of the midterm elections at the federal level. What we know so far:
The Democrats have won a House majority. How large the majority will be we are waiting on a few outstanding races, especially in California. Projections are pickups in the mid to high 30s when we're finished. This means that Nancy Pelosi will be the Speaker (DO NOT DISCUSS THIS), and Democrats will take over the committee chairmanships and have the authority to investigate various aspects of the Trump administration.
In the Senate, the GOP picked up seats in Indiana, Missouri, and North Dakota. Democrats picked up a seat in Nevada. Races in Florida and Arizona are too close to call. Scott is a definite favorite in Florida, Arizona we have no idea because there are an enormous number of votes out there still to count.
In this thread:
Discuss House/Senate results as they come in.
DO NOT discuss Democratic leadership battles, 2016, or 2020.
Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.
