There are key races right off the bat with the Georgia governor's race, the Indiana Senate race and House races in Virginia and Kentucky, in particular. If Republicans keep their majority, McCarthy could be the next speaker of the House.

Meantime, he also was asked how he will respond if Democrats win the House. "You vote, you might save a life".

Democrats also threaten to recapture governors' offices in several battleground states such as Michigan, Wisconsin and OH, a potential help for the party in those states in the 2020 presidential race. In fact, 10 of those races are taking place in states President Trump won in 2016, and Republicans are expecting to take several of those seats away from Democrats in states like North Dakota and Missouri.

"In the case of Justice Kavanaugh.for the sake of argument that he lied, I don't believe there is any evidence that he did." the judge said. Speaking to reporters as he left the White House en route to his rallies, Trump seemed to dampen expectations for his party in the House.

"Democrats are inviting caravan after caravan of illegal aliens to flood into our country and overwhelm your communities", he told a Make America Great Again rally Monday in the swing state of Ohio.

'I think we're going very well in the House.

"I think the Senate will be too much of an uphill climb". "They'll be miserable because they're in the minority". This, though, is Republicans' best chance to flip a gubernatorial seat with Mike Dunleavy.

Obama also appeared later on Sunday in his old home state of IL, which hosts a competitive governor's race and several tight U.S. House of Representative races.

Democrats for months have been favored by forecasters to win control of the House, where they need to net 23 seats to secure a majority.

President Trump and congressional GOP leaders will see holding the House as validation of their approach to governing. Lawmakers also plan to enact additional tax cuts aimed at the middle class and work to promote new trade policies.

However, two years after an election that proved pollsters and political commentators wrong, nothing is certain on the eve of the first nationwide elections of the Trump presidency. Candidates and their supporters are using the downtime to phone bank voters who still haven't voted and walk as many neighborhoods as possible. There won't be much room for error on controversial bills, but keeping the Republican conference all on the same page could be a big task for leaders.

"It's going to be a long night for America's voters and a busy night for us", says OneNewsNow editor-in-chief Jody Brown.

A turbulent election season that tested President Donald Trump's slash-and-burn political style against the strength of the Democratic resistance comes to a close as Americans cast ballots in the first national election of the Trump era. They can do whatever they want and I can do whatever I want'.

Republicans "have actually brought the change", she said.

Trump, without control of Congress, could decide to triangulate. But 2018 Democrat congressional candidates are projected to spend more than $2.53 billion, versus about $2.20 billion for Republican candidates.

"It could be bad for Republicans if he tries to do that", says Heye.

It turns out that numerous problems are closer to home.

As the issue gained traction in the midterms campaign, Republicans furiously sought to backpedal by releasing numerous ads that claim they do want protections for pre-existing conditions after all. Tuesday's elections are the first major ones to take place in the USA since Russian Federation targeted state election systems during the 2016 presidential race and ran disinformation campaigns with divisive content on Facebook and Twitter. "And that becomes the overriding goal".
