Republicans Lead in House in Midterm Elections, Decisive Seat Wins Democrats in Senate | Abroad


Neck and neck racing takes place in Georgia too

In Georgia, Democrats should fear losing seats. There, Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican contender Herschel Walker find themselves in a neck-and-neck race. With more than 95 percent of the votes counted (or 3.9 million ballot papers), the two candidates actually tied for about 49 percent of the vote.

Georgia has been a Republican stronghold since 2005. Warnock successfully broke that dominance in previous Senate elections in 2021, then became the state’s first black senator. He will compete with Walker, who is known for his American football career and who has received huge support from Trump.

If neither candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, a second ballot will be taken. It will be held in December. If the Senate elections come for this one race, it may be a while before there is clarity.

It seems that the House of Representatives is in the hands of the Republicans

Things are looking rosy for House Republicans, reports New York times And the CNN. At the moment, Republicans appear to be winning six seats previously held by Democrats. That may be enough to seize power in the House of Representatives.

Democrats won 167 seats in the House of Representatives, compared to 192 for Republicans. More than 71 seats are yet to be filled. A lot of that will likely go to the Democrats.

Enkele bijzondere winnaars bij de Amerikaanse midterms:

  • Maura Healey wordt de eerste openlijk lesbische gouverneur in de Verenigde Staten. Ze werd verkozen in de staat Massachusetts.
  • Ook haar running mate is een vrouw, waardoor Massachusetts als eerste staat twee vrouwen in de hoogste staatsambten krijgt.
  • Maxwell Frost is de eerste zogeheten gen-Z’er in het Huis van Afgevaardigden. De 25-jarige Democraat veroverde een zetel in Florida. Generatie Z bestaat uit mensen die tussen 1995 en 2010 zijn geboren.
