Democrats win many key seats to take back House after eight years – but Republicans increase majority in Senate
Here in New York, Democrat Max Rose knocked off the only Republican representing the city in Congress, defeating Rep. Dan Donovan with about 53% of the vote. Take a look back at our story on the Army veteran’s ultimately successful quest to the city’s only Republican bastion.
In another closely watched race further upstate, Democrat Antonio Delgado has unseated Republican Rep. John Faso. That race drew attention for negative ads attacking Delgado’s brief career as a hip hop artist. The “big city rapper” is also a Harvard law grad and Rhodes scholar, and now a Congressman-elect.
Donald Trump is up and tweeting about what he calls a “Big Victory”, despite his party losing control of the House.
Received so many Congratulations from so many on our Big Victory last night, including from foreign nations (friends) that were waiting me out, and hoping, on Trade Deals. Now we can all get back to work and get things done!
