With Democrats projected to retake the House of Representatives and Republicans maintaining a majority in the Senate, both parties claimed a partial victory early Wednesday in the first nationwide election since President Donald Trump took office.
Republicans pointed to wins in Senate contests in Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, and Texas as proof that a potential Democratic blue wave had sputtered dry. But Democrats are calling the capturing of the 23 seats needed for a House majority a clear rebuke to the president’s performance.
