We have had divided government for 8 of the last 12 years.
Democrats appear to have won between 32 and 34 House seats as of this afternoon. Twenty House races are yet to be called.
Republicans kept their Senate majority, and have added 2 or 3 seats to their majority, depending on the outcome of the yet-to-be called Senate race in Arizona.
Democrats took 29 House Republican districts; this included at least 22 incumbents as well as 7 Republican-held open seats. Republicans took 2 Democratic seats.
There will be one more Senate race this year, a November 27 in runoff election in Mississippi between Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R) and former Clinton administration Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy (D). Hyde-Smith is expected to prevail.
30 of 35 Senate races voted for the same party that won the state at the presidential level in 2016. The notion that Americans are ticket splitters is simply not true anymore.
Four Senate Democrats lost; this is the highest number of incumbent defeats for the non-presidential party in a midterm since 1934.
The House Financial Services Committee will go from a 34-26 R majority to a 37-32 D majority.
The House Ways and Means Committee will go from a 24-16 R majority to a 24-17 D majority.
There are 727 DAYS until the Presidential Election.
