midterm elections 2018

Republicans won 4 out of 5 races for governor during the hotly contested 2018 midterm elections on Tuesday. Up for grabs were 435 seats in the House and 35 out of 100 seats in the Senate.

The combined star power of Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sean Combs, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift were not enough to carry their candidates over the finish line. Every candidate endorsed by former President Obama lost their race.

Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum quickly conceded to Trump-endorsed Ron DeSantis in the governor’s race after 99% of precincts reported.

In the Georgia governor’s race Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams refused to concede to Brian Kemp after 100% of precincts reported.

Abrams, 44, declared she would not concede to Kemp until every single vote was counted.
“I’m here tonight to tell you votes remain to be counted,” Abrams told her supporters early Wednesday. “There’s voices that are waiting to be heard.”

Abrams hopes absentee ballots will give her enough votes to force a runoff with Kemp.

“Across our state folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots, and we believe our chance for a stronger Georgia is just within reach. But we cannot seize it until voices are heard,” Abrams said.

Abrams’ supporters urged her not to concede. They cited the Republicans’ voter suppression tactics such as a lack of voting machines in certain precincts.

One Twitter user wrote:

“I’m so glad Stacey isn’t conceding, Brian Kemp absolutely stole this election with no recourse…count every damn vote that made it thru…I’m over feckless Democrats…thank you @staceyabrams for your fight!”

In other key races Texas Democratic Senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke conceded to incumbent Senator Ted Cruz, who needed every vote to defeat the media rock star.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez of New York City became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress at age 28.

Republican Senate candidate John James of Michigan lost his bid to upset incumbent Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow.

And Maxine Waters, who has been named California’s most corrupt politician, was elected chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee. Let that sink in.

O’Rourke, 36, raised $70 million in donations to challenge Cruz, who only raised $40 million.

The Democrats celebrated after retaking control of the House of Representatives, but Dems taking the House was expected.

Traditionally the current administration in the White House loses the House in the first midterm after a presidential election.

By comparison, former President Barack Obama lost 64 seats in the House after his first midterm elections. Obama also lost both the House and the Senate to the Republicans.

The Republicans picked up 5 seats in the Senate, which rarely occurs after a presidential election.

Maintaining control of the Senate was crucial for Trump to appoint more Supreme Court justices and confirm them quickly when a seat opens up on the Supreme Court.

Retaking the House puts the Democrats back in control of the nation’s economy, which means higher taxes and a looming recession on the horizon.

It also means Trump will get his border wall built, but it will take more time since the Democrats now control the nation’s budget.

The Democrats will likely start impeachment proceedings against Trump and launch more Russia investigations to waste taxpayer dollars. But Trump will veto any bills coming out of the House.

President Bill Clinton was impeached by a Republican controlled House but he was acquitted by the Senate.

In other words, the House has little governing power.

President Trump was optimistic after the outcome of Tuesday’s midterm elections.

He tweeted:

“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!”

More money was spent on the 2018 midterm elections than in any midterms in U.S. history. Billions poured into campaign coffers from mega wealthy donors hoping to flip red states blue.

Political analysts say the much-anticipated “blue wave” was more like a puddle.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Maryland didn’t do that bad. A lot of my family voted Jealous but I voted Hogan because he has been good to the people thus far. Some of the things he cares like healthcare I am for. Other things I voted Democrat. My friends in Cali was glad Pelosi won.

    I cannot believe a lot of black women voted against Gillum?????

  • Django the God

    I’m still on Joie Chavis’ IG.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I’m independent. I’m truly sick of Dems and Republicans honestly. “Every rich man for himself” is the motto they live by. The only time they choose to mingle with the poor, is when they want our votes (around election time). But we shall see if things get better. I voted, so we shall see.

  • Phillybruh

    Those candidates were used for the top of the ticket and will be repayed nicely with a house or senate seat in the next few years. Dems were able to take back the house because the top of the ticket was attractive which brought out more voters and they won in areas of those states that they weren’t able too just two years ago.

  • Dr. P

    why what’s pahpin over there?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Joie is pahpin lol. She is indeed beautiful. I go to her IG from time to time.

    CT elected the first black woman from the state to represent us in Congress, Jahana Hayes!! I stomped for this woman and I am sooo glad she won. She is a former national teacher of the year and will do well in DC. Elated!!

  • Jesse

    Quite frankly Stacey Abrams should not concede this race until Brian Kemp is taken to court to fully explore all the things that went wrong at polling places all across the great state of Georgia. It was Brian Kemp’s JOB to make sure everyone eligible was able to exercise their constitutional right to vote and instead he sent machines with no electrical plugs to polling stations, polling places did not have paper ballots, machines were broken and lines were insufferably long. This man has been disenfranchising voters for years and his day of reckoning has come. Enough is enough. 

    That being said, the DEMOCRATS taking the house is a BIG WIN! Also.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3ea80f7abe052587a7de383ebc2bc63a01d99f15aa8aefd8fa4cf3f7edb72e1c.jpg

  • FukkFolks2018

    Well here in NC the success story for me personally wasnt about seats etc. Folks who been needed to go still in there….and that is not gonna change here. Its why Jesse Helms was allowed to stay so long.

    But we DID manage to get rid of our longtime racist arse mayo sheriff in this here capital county. Which is not unheard of for us bc a black man also IRONICALLY of the same last name of the NEWLY elected sheriff…served here for a quarter century (RIP to John Baker) up til 2003.

    Anyways congrats to Sheriff Gerald Baker and welcome.

  • HIS4EVA

    a big win! of course some will try to play this down!

  • Django the God

    I wonder if she’ll listen to me freestyle.

  • Elevated Soul

    I voted straight “red” ballot yesterday for the 1st time as an Independent,so Abrams did not get my vote nor was it owed to her.

    I know this is probably a blow to the entertainers and even the egotistical Obama that all of the people they campaigned for lost.So glad to see that President Trump gained seats in the Senate because the Senate is, ‘where it is at”…..

    Sending mad energy to my Black people who I saw with “BLEXIT” shirts on at the polls.

  • NorthDeKalb

    Stacy’s loss is heartbreaking, but if she had to be a sacrificial lamb in the bigger effort to neuter Trump’s legislative authority, I’m at peace with her L! His abuse of unchecked power over the last 2 years was the much sharper thorn in my a$$. Stacy and Andrew’s win would’ve been icing on the cake – and I’m devastated by their defeat, but having Trump’s legislative legs kicked from under him is a sweet enough consolation prize for me to lick my wounds and move on.

  • Phillybruh

    But they dems didn’t lose, folks got out and voted and the dems took the house which was the actual goal.

  • Jesse

    Exactly. We’re coming for Trump’s orange taint lace front.

  • Dr. P

    lmaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Just post your soundcloud info in her comments like everyone else does. She is gawjuss though

    Lol

  • Django the God

    Michigan legalized marijuana.

    I might buy me a lil starter home in Detroit.

  • Scromes1212

    No big winners no big losers. Dems did what they needed to do as far as the house and republicans to a strong hold on the Senate. Can’t believe how much money the democrats raised smh and still had very close races all over the country

  • JV

    What’s ridiculous about Stacey Abram’s loss is that her opponent, Brian Kemp, was Secretary of State WHILE running for governor. The Secretary of State oversees the states elections. In the last week of the election he — without any evidence — accused Democrats of vote tampering. It was an obvious dog whistle. Only Republicans go low like this, seriously.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Stacey got close, but it just wasn’t time yet. Georgia isn’t quite ready for a black governor, but her campaign was still inspiring and lays the groundwork for the black/Democratic governor who will eventually win that office. It might take 6-10 years, but it will happen for sure.

  • JV

    +7 in state governors though. Makes it a lot harder for Republicans in those states to gerrymander, which is a big reason why they had the House in the first place. It wasn’t a bad night, but I think people had unnecessarily high expectations. Mid-2017 taking back the House did not seem possible.

  • JV

    It might be a decade-plus before Dems get the Senate back. But yeah, it was always a pipe dream this election. Fivethirtyeight had predictions at 1 in 6, which I thought was wildly optimistic.

  • Jesse

    I believe we’re going to get the Senate in 2020. The house was the first goal.

  • rayne215

    really thought Beto had it. cant shame dems for “celebrity power” when another celeb has daily rally’s paid for by the tax payers that scares folks and have racist messages.

  • Kanyade

    Texas. Senate Seat. so CLOSE the votes. Texas. Overwhelmingly a “red” state had such a close race. Kudos for Beto for giving it all and invigorating voters.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Bass… I believe that… & that person is whyte… then have the nerve to use black images to hide his/her true identity.

  • Scromes1212

    I agree it wasn’t a bad night on either end. But nothing will get done for the next two years smh more fake news and investigations

  • JV

    Low-key one of the biggest changes: Florida is restoring the voting rights of felons not convicted of murder and sex crimes. Over 1 million people. That’s a big freaking deal in a purple state.

  • what?why

    A foregone conclusion, that’s why Trump concentrated on the Senate (more powerful than House). Actually the House has been an embarrassment for years. It’s time the people put the pressure on their congressmen and ask to see their taxes (extremely self serving)! Check them out.

  • therealashland

    Why didn’t Andrew force a runoff the Florida numbers were to close

  • JV

    It’ll make it a lot easier for Mueller’s findings to go public. Also, the House is going to be subpoena-ing White House staff like crazy. So, yeah, I expect the investigation stuff to start to ramp up for sure.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Huge. That could help tip the state to the Democrats in 2020. This is bad for Trump of course, even though he probably doesn’t even realize it yet.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Take me with you…

  • Itzgoingdown

    These black politicians must stop supporting every democratic issue. Everything liberal IS NOT in the best interest of the black community. Black politicians have become nothing more than white liberals disguised in BlackFace.

    This is really not a lost for the black community. We need black leaders with basic common sense who will make the black community their top priority.

    – No to keeping black kids trapped in horrible ghetto schools
    producing millions of functionally illiterate black adults.
    -No to Millions of Illegals taking jobs, government resources and
    suppressing wages. This ALSO HURTS BLACK
    BUSINESSES
    trying to hire low skilled blacks
    -No to socialism over capitalism ie black business entrepreneurs
    -No to Tranny’s in the rest room with little girls

    I could list many more but I won’t.

  • NorthDeKalb

    It’s just really sad. I voted for Stacey the day early voting began but to be totally honest about it – my vote had more to do with the restoration of check/balances within our government – something this president doesn’t appreciate. Her win would’ve made it even sweeter, but in the end I got exactly what I wanted.

  • Phillybruh

    They are less than 10 seats from control it all depends on who is the top of the ticket for President. And just like when Obama won in 08 so does everyone under him.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. An Elizabeth Warren-Beto O’Rourke ticket can beat Trump in 2020. The Democrats need a fighter to take on Trump, and both of those 2 are fighters. When Trump swings, they’ll swing back… which is something Hillary Clinton didnt do enough of in 2016.

  • free

    didn’t realize that.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Oh yeah! Lol we can spilt the mortgage

  • Kanyade

    Hillary was barely present in 2016. She was high on the fumes of ego and hubris, expecting a win that never came. A missed opportunity.

  • Dee Moe

    Dems can no longer search for history. They have to be smart. Only way to win is to run a white man vs a white man.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Dekalb since you put it like that I can go on too…I need a TALL glass of wine

  • RealATLPeach36

    Two of the same ass okay

  • HIS4EVA

    yes ma’am. the purpose was to unite against Trump’s proxies!

  • Phillybruh

    Because they got what they wanted out of that race, House seats.

  • TMW

    No surprises. At all. Amerikkka gonna Amerikkka.

  • Truth Or Die

    “It also means Trump will get his border wall built, but it will take more time since the Democrats now control the nation’s budget”

    Correction: The Federal Reserve (on behalf of the International Banking Cartel) from which the House of Reps get their funding from control the nation’s budget.

  • NorthDeKalb

    Yup. One more positive tidbit – Maxine Waters, Trump’s favorite target with remarks about her “low IQ” will now Chair the House Financial Services Committee – the very group with authority to subpoena his tax returns and bank records to look into financial crimes within the Trump Organization LOL Let’s see how much he has to say about that brain of hers now.

  • Fire & Ice

    I still don’t think he loss. We all know they cheated

  • JV

    Candidates like Abrams and Gillum losing (both barely) doesn’t change the fact that other candidates, like Ilhan Omar, won.

  • Scromes1212

    You do know who runs the federal reserve, right? It all comes through the president

  • the guest

    “I’m so glad Stacey isn’t conceding, Brian Kemp absolutely stole this election with no recourse…count every damn vote that made it thru…I’m over feckless Democrats…thank you @staceyabrams for your fight!”

    ****

    AGREED.

  • KLove

    As a convicted felon myself, I am glad for this. The problem is, the assumption is that they are all going to vote Democrat, when in fact a lot of them are not.

    Same thing with illegal immigration, Democrats assume that once they are all given the right to vote, that they will all vote Democrat. Hispanics moral/social values align more with Republicans than Democrat however.

  • the guest

    Gillum won. But I think Florida is dangerous and he was behind the scenes threatened. I believe this. Because he absolutely and beautifully ran and won that race.

  • Mark mcharm

    In other words, the House has little governing power. Keep thinking that they already are forcing his hand when it comes to his taxes?

  • Scromes1212

    Threatened? Lol Cut out the conspiracy theories smh he ran a great race but got beat by a few votes, period. Florida has had close Senate and governor races for a long time. This one was no different

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. She (and most of the Democrats) never took him seriously enough. But now we’re on to his evil, race-baiting, fear-mongering ways. The right candidate can and will expose him for the political conman that he is.

  • KLove

    LOL my girl voted Dem for everything except Abrams…..something about her bringing Oprah, and Obama, etc, to tell us how we should feel and how we should vote, rubbed her the wrong way

  • Renee26

    Auntie you sound very bitter

  • Ryan

    It’s been two years and they haven’t even started on a wall. Sad, gullible fools.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Do you mind telling us how you reached this conclusion? ( If it’s a trade secret you don’t have to tell. Just curious. ) :-)

  • Elevated Soul

    These fools don’t shyt!

  • Renee26

    But Mexico is supposed to be paying for the wall let Dump tell it…so it shouldn’t matter

  • NorthDeKalb

    Legislatively, they have ALL the power. All of Trumps rollbacks of Obama’s initiatives, which he, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan made a point to do from the get-go, come to a screeching halt. Healthcare is now protected; anything Trump wants to do legislatively has to be approved. That hasn’t been the case for the past two years.

  • TMW

    You do realize there are three branches of government for the purposes of checks and balances, right? If Trump has the final say, the wall would be built. With Democratic control of the congress, none of his administrative policies will get approved, and he’s going to face a litany of investigations, if not impeachment articles. His next 2 years will not be pleasant.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They can subpoena his taxes. And they can protect Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. They can protect him if Trump tries to fire him, and they can protect his report when he issues it. Otherwise, a Republican-led Intelligence Committee could have taken Mueller’s report, classified it, and buried it from public view. The Dems will make sure it sees the light of day.

  • Renee26

    It’s about time. My family members have been saying for a while that the police don’t bother people smoking in public

  • TMW

    Trump has done most things through Executive Order, not by getting new legislation passed. Executive orders allow him to not have to go through Congress, but there is only so much they can do, and that’s why they end up in court (i.e. the travel ban and immigration policy changes)

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    True. 1.. The Affordable Care Act is safe for at least these two years, and 2.. The Dems can put forward a long overdue infrastructure bill (which Trump wouldn’t dare veto since he campaigned talking about infrastructure).

  • NorthDeKalb

    No, he used the House as well because they were controlled by Republicans. You can only go so far with Execitive Orders. He couldn’t repeal Obamacare with an Execitive Order or it would’ve been done long ago.

  • NorthDeKalb

    Exactly.

  • Ryan

    If there’s a runoff Dec. 4th I’m voting again, believe that!! Especially after seeing Dems clean House, literally. LOL

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And where’s Trump’s infrastructure bill he talked about in 2016? He didnt even propose one. All the Republicans did was try A)to kill Obamacare, and B).. Give a tax cut that mostly benefited the rich and corporations.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Mortgage? You can get a decent brick house for about $10,000 in the city. That excludes all the video surveillance, and armored doors and windows you’ll need.

  • Ryan

    Exactly. Executive orders aren’t blank checks, as he has found out time and time again. There’s a reason why checks and balances exist.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    What we’ve seen clearly the past few years is that Republicans are good at winning elections (by cheating, gerrymandering, voter intimidation, fearmongering, etc.). But they’re not good at governing.

    Now maybe we’ll finally get some real governing with the Democrats having control of the house.

  • Itzgoingdown

    She was going to give illegals the same rights as blacks and make Georgia a sanctuary state like California. There is not one city nor state where blacks have benefited economically, academically nor socially from a large influx of illegals. Millions of illegals just puts blacks under another group of racist people who hate blacks. She also wants to keep poor black kids trapped in horrible ghetto public schools. This is not a lost for the black community.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump will just ignore the subpoenas.
    Who’s going to arrest him–no one in his own DOJ and definitely not his handpicked AG.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah but like we saw yesterday you got to get the people to the polls.
    Somehow I think the Republican controlled Florida government will throw a monkey wrench into ex-felons being able to vote.

  • TMW

    The only thing that got approved in both the house and senate was the tax changes. The Affordable Care Act did not get repealed because there were not enough votes to even get it through the senate, but he has signed some executive orders to change some aspects of the ACA, some executive orders to roll back EPA policies, etc. The reason why he doesn’t have the wall is because the budget to fund it didn’t get approved in the senate. However all those senators that were willing to vote against him chose not to run again. Things will fly through the Senate now, but will not get passed in the House that is now under democratic control.

  • rockstar2142

    Yep so true.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They’ll get the tax returns from the IRS. The House Ways & Means Committee can get the tax returns of any U.S. citizen. They don’t need Trump’s approval or cooperation.

  • rockstar2142

    Yeah I didn’t get that either it was way to close.

  • Y me?

    She must be Republican

  • rockstar2142

    Clear conflict of interest. He should have stepped down.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why?

    Gillum got fewer votes than Hillary and the where he needed to turn out the vote in Broward and Miami-Dade didn’t come through.
    Even the South Florida based female news anchor who comes on during the TJMS was saying during early voting that the numbers weren’t going to be enough for Gillum to win.
    I wonder if anyone from the Gillum campaign paid attention.
    Another thing is some of the precincts in Miami-Dade or Broward said they couldn’t transmit the vote totals electronically so they had to take thumb drives to the election headquarters and transfer the voting data.
    If that doesn’t sound shady I don’t know what does especially since they were the last precincts that reported their votes.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I’m sorry but America will never elect a female president.
    O’Rourke is a flash in the pan and how is he going to run after being out of office for over a year?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This is a bad day for Trumpettes. But losing the House was BIG. Last night marked the end of one-party rule in this country, and it will finally put a check and balance on Trump, a man who never had to deal with any checks and balances before in his life before going to Washington.

  • Alextra Ballard

    That’s the reason why I’m so pissed at Gillum….He just conceded without a fight

  • rockstar2142

    Yeah most definitely disappointed. Even though I voted for her I figured a lot of these white folks down here wouldn’t.

  • Itzgoingdown

    There are millions of blacks who will not vote for another BlackFace politician like Obama by either just not voting or voting republicans. Secondly, Trump is going to get about 30 percent of the black vote regardless of who runs against him….Black or white.

  • Phillybruh

    The elected over a 100 women last night. The electorate is changing. Warren and O’Rourke could be a good ticket. But the dems will have to nominate a women their voting block is becoming just that.

  • Phillybruh

    That was dumb I don’t think anyone told them how to vote and who to vote for. Just pointing out that you should vote.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Then what?

    Nothing in them is going to change anyone’s minds even so-called Independents.

    I live in Florida and can’t believe that both of our U.S. Senators are Republican as well as the governor.

    Republicans have controlled the governor’s mansion for the last quarter century and the legislature since 1992 yet we have all of these problems including red tide and these fools continue to vote for them because they are afraid they may pay state income taxes.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    All budgets begin in the House, but Trump will use the House as a foil if he decides to run for re-election in 2020.

  • Phillybruh

    But how many house seats in those districts were picked up. It was never ever about those candidates winning just getting enough people to the polls so the house seat in that district can be won.

  • Waya Hedia

    OH god. What nonsense. You can’t even take those allegations seriously from a guy like you.

  • NorthDeKalb

    He can ignore it all he wants, but if the House wants his tax returns and financial records, that’s exactly what they’ll get. Republicans quickly concluded their investigation into his crimes because legislatively they were getting what they wanted on the back end. Now it’s time to take a REAL look into his finances.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So?
    Why did 53% of white women vote against HIllary?

    Because white women prefer men in positions of power.

    Women are vicious and petty toward each other something you never see among men.

  • Solstice

    This!!!!! Thank you

  • Waya Hedia

    Trump can still fire Mueller regardless of the House.

    The can subpoena his taxes all day long. Won’t make any difference at all.

    The Dems will only make sure the report sees the light of day if there is something they can benefit from.

  • Waya Hedia

    So. They’re gonna get the returns from one of the most powerful organizations in the gov’t that what.. never bothered to check them out? So the Dems are gonna find all kinda stuff that the stupid IRS just missed. Got it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The only thing those tax returns are going to show is that his net worth isn’t what he claims it to be and he owes Russia a lot of money.

    Two things that won’t change anyone’s mind.

  • Phillybruh

    He can fire Mueller, but the house can retain him and allow him to continue his investigation.

  • PhillyFacts

    All of em

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The IRS is under the executive branch.
    Again good luck. It will go to the Supreme Court and with all of the right wing judges McConnell has pushed through I am sure at least a couple will side with Trump.

  • Phillybruh

    I’m assuming because the campaign that has been run against Hillary since she was first lady is in bedded in folks mind. 53% of white women will not vote for Trump a 2nd time.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    We’ll see. You can keep sipping on that bitterness and negativity all you want… but there are some of us that recognize that a shift is beginning to take place.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    MLJ: Now maybe we’ll finally get some real governing with the Democrats having control of the House.

    Well don’t be surprised if funding for Trump’s wall is included in some type of comprehensive immigration reform bill.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Georgia is becoming a purple state. With the demographics shifts taking place down here, it’s only a matter of time. The GOP is desperately trying to hold on to their stranglehold on power, but they can only hold on for so long .

  • Phillybruh

    They were always willing to give him that for some type of meaningful comprise they offered it too him before and he played them and then he never got it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But since Democrats were the minorities in both chambers they had some cover because the bill would have required only a couple of Democrats from each chamber to have voted for an immigration bill.

    But now Democrats are going to be exposed because Pelosi will have to craft an immigration bill to explain to their base why they compromised with Trump and gave him his wall.

    Of course the Republican base won’t give a damn if that’s what they are told to do because this entire immigration issue has been a scam to keep the Republican base going to the polls.

    That only means the Republicans will have to come up with a new boogyman for 2002 or recycle an old one.

    ugh….don’t have time to discuss this political mess…so see yall next post…

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I disagree.

    Trump was able to activate that 53% of white women in those red states that took down Democratic U.S. Senator and denied Gillum and Abrams their chances to become governors.

  • Phillybruh

    I think the base will get why they compromised. I think the democratic base is actually fine with the shared power its the other side not so much. The Republicans are going to run against Hillary and Obama and Pelosi, but I think in the next year she decides not to run for re-election.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile ain nutn happ’n over there ither

  • DeJeri

    People probably thought that there would never be an African-American president either. People probably thought that Jim Crow would last forever. People probably thought that slavery would be eternal. Where there’s a will there’s a way.

  • Phillybruh

    His base is his base, that won’t change but he will need to expand if he wants too win in 2020.

  • Anonymouse

    No, it wasn’t big and the Dems know that. They were already crying when they realized their blue wave was nothing more than a trickle. Trump did better than Clinton and Obama during the midterms. The House cannot do anything without the Senate!

  • Anonymouse

    Tells you what kind of leader he would have been. At least Abrams is fighting. And I’m not a fan of her, at all.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Not if movements like #walkaway and people like Boyce Watkins can continue to convince black people not to vote.

    Unfortunately I think it was effective and that’s why Gillum lost and Abrams is going to lose.

  • NorthDeKalb

    No matter how anyone spins it, all oversight committees will now be chaired and controlled by Democrats. The BUDGET is controlled by Democrats. No more grandstanding and making moves that a plurality of people don’t agree with, that stops. The House has the subpoena power and anything that involves a bag must be approved by the Democrats. Cut and dried.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But Obama was still a man.

    I know most people aren’t into astrology but America is the archtype of the nurturing mother which goes against the idea of a woman being president.

  • Anonymouse

    Stacey Abrams needs to concede and move on. If this heads to a runoff, she’s going to suffer an embarrassing loss. Georgians don’t want her or her socialist policies.

    So funny that Dems think controlling the House means anything. The Senate is where it moves forward or goes to die. Republicans control that and thank God for it.

    They need to focusing on 2020 and which candidate their going to prop up or get ready for another 4 years of MAGA!

  • Baaba Sanders

    Read in the New York Magazine that Mueller is about to indict some people and don jnr. is one of them.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It’s not bitterness it’s reality.

    Every election cycle Republicans come up with an even more devious plan to suppress the vote of the Democratic base.

    This year it was the #walkaway movement and then there was a concerted effort on social media including YouTube to convince black people not to vote.

    For a state like Florida where most statewide elections are won or lost by less than a percentage point black people sitting out an election can be a game changer.

  • Phillybruh

    And Vice Versa

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But if Gillum had been elected he would have had some imput on the next redistricting after the 2020 census.

    The same goes for Abrams and Georgia already has 18 electoral votes or 16 congressional districts and both Georgia and Florida are going to gain seats after the next census.

  • Phillybruh

    When then at that point those black people deserve what they get.

  • Phillybruh

    True, but those states are VERY RED they needed them to be competitive enough to get those house seats. Abrams may not have a say in if she concedes if votes are still out there that can push him under 50% a run-off is the law.

  • Baaba Sanders

    There is a story on media take out that majority of black women in Florida voted for desantis.

  • Django the God

    Can you roll up?

    What that mouth do?

  • Joy King

    I caught the shade at Obama in the write up but he isn’t the blame for the candidates he endorsed losing. People like who they like. People loved and respected Obama, so they came out in droves to vote for him. Unfortunately, the Democratic Party hasn’t found the right candidate to energize the party the way Obama did. Until then we have to keep pushing forward and not lose hope.

  • TMW

    Agree, she needs to go all they way with this as far as she can go. Someone up top said it would be embarrassing for her if she doesn’t concede – I totally disagree.

  • DeJeri

    I’m not really sure how you’re arriving at the nurturing mother archetype based on the fact that this country was founded on slave labor and mass decimation of Native Americans. Also, the 500 billion dollars that goes to the defense budget, in my opinion, has clearly established the US as warmongers, not nurturers. I read recently how scientists did DNA testing on a viking warrior who was given a prestigious burial and were surprised to find that the deceased was a woman. Even in ancient, male dominated societies, there were women who were leaders. Although improbable, it isn’t impossible.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, it would have “meant something” if the GOP kept the House, but now it means nothing because Democrats won it. I’m not sure if you’re just ignorant of why it’s actually a big deal, or if you’re just being a hypocrite. Either way it’s bad. smh

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Say it louder so “Anonymouse” up top can hear you… since he/she thinks it’s not such a big deal.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don’t believe that.
    Maybe a small percentage but it would not have been that close if a majority of black women had voted for Desantis.

  • EMILY POST

    I like Gilliam’s position on stand your ground…. but that’s about all I got.
    GOP lost the house ? but kept the senate… Now we will watch more fake trump investigations … nothing will get done

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    OK the U.S. natal chart has three planets in Cancer (Sun, Venus, and Jupiter).
    The reason that America is a warmongering nation is because Cancer is a sensitive sign and male Cancers have a difficult time with that part of their personalities so they overcompensate by attempting to appear hyper-masculine which manifests itself in the obsession this country has with the military and war.
    Also the U.S. Mar (god of war) is in Gemini which is why we have military bases all over the world.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was talking about the House of Representatives and how those seats are going to be gerrymandered.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We have to suffer too.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. The truth will come out, and Trump cant stop it. That’s a beautiful thing.

  • DeJeri

    Interesting.

  • Blak

    “Every candidate endorsed by former President Obama lost their race” lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. And multiple European countries currently female heads of state (Germany, Britain, and Norway to name a few) and it’s been that way for decades.
    America is a bit behind, but we’ll get there too. It’s only a matter of time.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He wont expand his base though. He’s too bigoted to genuinely reach out and appeal to minority groups…. which is fine with me. Every single day the electorate becomes younger and more racially diverse. I think 2020 is the year when that really ends up biting Trump and the GOP in the butt.

  • Renee26

    I really need demographics on who voted for Ted Cruz because I’m wondering if the self hating Latino population here in Texas kept him in office.

  • NorthDeKalb

    I wasn’t as emotionally invested in Stacey’s win as I was Gilliam’s because although I voted for her, I knew the path to victory was narrow here in GA. But I was somehow convinced that Gilliam had it in the bag, so his loss really stung. Especially after the racially charged robocalls and dog whistles targeting both candidates. It’s really disheartening, but I find solace in knowing that Trumps legislative castle keys have been snatched. That gives me peace.

  • PhillyFacts

    Praise God!

  • DeJeri

    I agree with you. Republicans have been in control of the House and Senate for the last 6 years and haven’t introduced didly squat. They’ve had plenty of time to introduce a bill with immigration reform.

  • Renee26

    With your sprinkles of shade at the Democrats throughout the write up ?

  • bemetoo

    They did…and it makes no sense

  • Jethro
  • Simone

    The bad: The Democrats took control of the House. The good: Celebrities and money cannot buy elections. Oprah knocking on doors in GA, Taylor Swift issuing a first time endorsement in TN and Diddy dancing on stage for Gillum…all failed. Republicans still control the Senate so Trump’s confirmations of judges shall continue. Desantis!!! Our taxes are still low!

  • Look@m3

    I know that GA was cheated! But Ill carry on….There is no way that…no way I am going to believe that there wasn’t some f’ery with this election or any of these elections for that matter. Again, no one wants to discuss the mass internet issues that took place yesterday ….

    To those who Lost, Remember to , try and Make the most of the best and the best of the worst, and keep your standards high. Never settle for anything less than you deserve or are capable of achieving. People with a working Brain know that there was/is two crooks who won, so it’s safe to say that they may still be called to testify on their behalf in court, before it’s all said , and done.

  • Faithz

    Many of us who are looking at things as they has happened that the Republicans has crooked and n00ked their way into the game once again. What I like at the end of the day is that even without those who we wanted to Win, at least we got the House to try, and make for sure that this Daffy Duck Fellow has Some Checks and Balances, thank you Jesus, and that’s a good start.

  • deadellamore
  • NorthDeKalb

    Yes that’s what I was saying earlier. Since Trump’s got so much to say about her IQ, let’s see if she knows how to read tax returns since Maxine now chairs a commitee with authority to subpoena them. The irony of it all!

  • Alextra Ballard

    I don’t believe many folks are gonna turn out for the 20/20 Presidential election as they did for this Midterm. This midterm was historic. Some folks are still upset

  • P0shzZ0la

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA….Obama proved to be useless once again along with his sidekick Oprah. Now if they put this loser to the forefront again in 2020 the DemoCrap party is not only stupid but need to be COMPLETELY demolished and reevaluated for senility….! Bye Obama….The DemoCraps lost more than 1,030 seats in state legislatures, governor’s mansions and Congress during Obama’s presidency. NO DEMOCRAPS it’s not all about color and minorities….GIVE IT UP….! Stop with the identity politics

    The DemoCraps were expecting the BLUE WAVE and it turned out to be a whimper. This was actually a big night for Trump. The Republicans that were in lock step with him won hands down and those that weren’t got the boot. The Trump agenda has been cemented. Gridlock government can’t do anymore damage than it already has. The DemoCraps took an even bigger azz whipping in the 2010 midterms than the GOP did last night…and Obama was a lame duck then too! However, Pelosi, Waters, Schiff, Cummings, et alii, on assuming House leadership, will turn the House into a nonproductive, highly partisan circus, setting the stage for a Republican resurgence in 2020.

    The GOP majority in the House was also doomed, midterm or not, due to the number of retirements they had that left open seats. Thus, we see the true purpose of the Constitution: to minimize the effects of populism. The rabble of the house will be contained. With the senate majority Trumps appointees can be pushed through and clean up more DEEP STATE scum.

    Even if the DemoCraps can get something past the Senate through the reconciliation process Trump can simply veto it and say let’s negotiate a better deal. BWAHAHAHA Of course, The idiot Dems will probably try to impeach Trump and the senate will never proceed with it. They can stick a fork in the Russian Collusion lie and Impeachment….it’s done. Oh, by the way….I hope they’d make Ocrazio-Cortez house majority speaker we are really going to need the laughs going forward.

    On another note, Beto has been vanquished, Gillum trash canned and Abrams kicked to the curb. Hollywood has failed once again…! BWAHAHA The downside will is our being subjected to having to look at the mugs of Pelosi, Schiff and Waters courtesy of the MSM for the next 2 years.

    Just giving my take on last night’s election. I’m lovin it…! Sure the DemoCraps won’t quit hassling Trump, dreaming up concoctions, even though they’ve continuously failed. They are a mentally ill group who can’t live in a civilized society. Hey…it’s going to get crazier. Get ready….!
    NO….I’M NOT REPLYING TO THE LOST, BRAINWASHED, UNINFORMED, MENTALLY DERANGED INDIVIDUALS…! Apologies to the handful who are well-informed…! Don’t give up…!

    The problem is they didn’t know who to vote for. I’m military so Ted Cruz was the sensible choice for me but look at the other to candidates. There’s one who no one knew was running. And then there’s Robert Francis O’Rourke from El Paso. He message didn’t speak to the black vote. His platform is geared toward the Latino vote because that’s the district he comes from, but the kicker is he not Latino and Cruz is. So Cruz got the Latino vote. Beto was actually more popular outside of Texas.

  • Janice Collins

    He threw water on everybody. Everybody with a job got a tax cut.

    Self hating? you know Ted Cruz really is Latino. Like his dad was born in Cuba. Robert Francis O’Rourke is Irish. What is your point.

    It was during the old days when not too much intelligence was required to get into office. Unfortunately a bunch of these idiots are still in office. Now with identity politics and everybody a victim mess and with the over sensitivity of black people they can’t get rid of this clown.

    Yeah his behind is out next. Wasting taxpayer’s money on a lie is a disgrace to this country. He’s part of the cabal and establishment along with Odumba and the others. He’s a traitor to this country.

    Why should they? Why isn’t anybody holding Odumba accountable for shipping billions of dollars to Iran on pallets. Or lying about Odumbacare? He said “you can keep your doctor.”

    Lies You the morons that repeat what the main stream media says then turn around and repeat what The Donald supporters say to make it look like you saying something. Child go sit down somewhere!

    That’s it

    There never was a free ride clown. The Donald doesn’t even take a salary. You think the continuous lies and criminal tactics of the leftist is a free ride? The Donald is not a career politician. He’s not even a politician because “he’s for the people and for cleaning up this country.” The career politicians like Hillary, Odumba, Maxine Breaking-her-Waters, Feinstein, and the rest are the ones who have had a free ride that’s why they so worried about The Donald because he’s exposing them one by one. Dam you don’t think at all. You’re not on the level of the sane and astute. Don’t even try. The Donald is way above the cut and still the boss. Bye child

    Everybody talking about anybody who dont vote cant complain which sounds stupid to me because our ancestors been voting since they was allowed to vote , and where is the progress we are still considered 3 /5 ths of a human that is written in the 13 amendment . they consider us as animals , thats how they justify how they treat us . and we had a black president who signed into law a Indefinte Detention amendment for regular citizens to be treated like terrorist, and only helped the Lgbt get rights so if a black man was not sympathetic to our plight what the hell we thought Trump was gone do ? With the 2000 Presidental race Al Gore beat George Bush that night , and when we woke up the next morning Bush had straight jacked the presidency , and no one said or done anything . so all political positions are selected not elected . Stop drinking the coolaid and going in those dam voting stations why they take your currency when u go in and vote . Love and Light

    The positive manifestation of Cancer is the loving, nurturing mother who is typically a homemaker (that’s why it will be difficult for a woman to be elected president–she will have to be seen as a nurturer and not overbearing) while the negative manifestation of Cancer is tribalism–I only like you if you look like me, think like me and have the same religion.
    So America will always be a racist segregated country even though it is racial diverse.

    Buck Teef lost. She is so used to having everything handed to her that she does not understand this. She figures if she pouts and puts on that effective nasty scowl that somehow things will change as they have in the past. Someone needs to spell it out for her.

    She’s still in the game. Kemp’s dirty ass wishes she would give up.
