US Midterms: Republicans Narrowly Win Back The House

 Republicans have secured the two hundred and 18 seats be in need of for a majority in the lower chamber of Congress a week after the midterm elections.

While the Republicans margin in the House of Representatives is razor-thin, it is quiet enough to stall US President Joe Biden's agenda for the coming 2 years.

The result was celebrated by the Kevin McCarthy, the Republicans' leader in the House.

But Democrats will hold on to power of the upper chamber, the Senate.

The new Congress will convoke in the month of January.

The Republicans - who had look for to win back authority of both chambers - under-performed belief in the last week's midterms.

But they got the important seats they were in need of for their House majority on Wednesday when California's 27th district went to incumbent Mike Garcia.

The Republican party is now estimated to get between 218 to 223 seats in the 435 seat House, according to well known news website.

But with votes in many cliff-hanger races still being counted by the authorities, and its not clear who is leading because it may not be clear for days or even weeks. as we will get to know we will try to update them. 

Mr McCarthy, on Tuesday who was picked by rank-and-file Republicans to be their nominee to replace the Democrat Nancy Pelosi as the up coming Speaker of the House, said the chamber had been "officially flipped".

It was tweeted by a California congressman on Wednesday night "Americans are ready for a new direction, and House Republicans are ready to deliver,".

for the sake of to be elected Speaker, the House Republican minority leader must get over majority support from the 435 participants of the full House.

But Mrs Pelosi, 82, signaled that she wouldn't relinquish the gavel quietly, on Wednesday night vowing in a statement that her party would exert "strong leverage over a scant Republican majority".

The 1st woman to grip the post, Mrs Pelosi, 82, didn't said anything in her press release about whether she think out to stay on as minority leader, amid speculation in Washington about her future.
