Democrats Keep Senate But Lose the House
Did you vote yesterday? An awnawhellnaw…Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives to Republicans in the mid-term elections, but retained control of the Senate.
Although Democrats lost control of the House, which was decided when California Senator Barbara Boxer held off former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. Needing to pick up 10 seats with about a dozen Democratic seats in play, Republicans were also unable to win Connecticut, West Virginia or Delaware, the three most challenging for the party of the earliest races to be called. As for some of the countries controversial propositions, California’s Prop 19, which would have legalized the use of marijuana for recreational use: it was shot down. Additionally, Rhode Island’s Proposition or ‘Question 1,’ which proposed to change the name of the state, was also defeated.
