Republicans Narrowly Regain House Of Reps In US Midterm Poll
Republicans have secured the 218 seats needed for a majority in the lower chamber of the US Congress a week after the midterm elections.
While the party’s margin in the House of Representatives is razor-thin, it is enough to stall President Joe Biden’s agenda for the next two years.
But democrats will keep control of the Senate when the new Congress convenes in January. A handful of seats remain to be called.
The Republicans who had hoped to win back control of both chambers under-performed expectations in last week’s midterms.
But they won the seat they needed for their house majority on Wednesday when California’s 27th district went to incumbent Mike Garcia.
The Republican party is now projected to win between 218-223 seats in the 435-seat house, according to CBS.
