Democrats officially take control of the House on Thursday as the 116th Congress convenes. The new majority will have 235 seats to Republicans’ 199, with one seat still undecided in North Carolina amid allegations of voter fraud. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is all but certain to reclaim the House speaker’s gavel. In the Senate, the GOP will add to its majority, seating three new senators for a total of 53.
