enjoy your small victory .. republicans will take back the house in a couple yrs ..
I doubt it. It donít see the house switching control after only 2 years. Itís true that Republicans have held the house for 20 of the last 24 years, but I canít see the Dems ONLY being able to hold the house for 2 years.
Trump said he would give himself an A+ grade as president, and asked if he could give himself a higher grade.
Americans do not agree with this, that's why they took the House away from him and the Republicans.
How a Blue Wave Wiped Out Republicans in the Largest County in Texas
HOUSTONóAn energized Democratic electorate wasnít enough to defeat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz this month, but in the stateís most populous county, it created a blue landslide.
Nearly every Republican in Harris County, home to Houston, was unseated on Nov. 6, including 59 judges and the top executive, Ed Emmett, a moderate who won in 2014 with 83% of the vote.
Mr. Emmett, whose official title is county judge and who was widely lauded for steering the county through the devastation of Hurricane Harvey last year, lost to political novice Lina Hidalgo, a Democrat who said she has never previously attended a meeting of the Harris County Commissioners Court, which she will soon oversee. The 27-year-old won by less than 2 percentage points and will now help run a metro area that encompasses some 4.6 million people, the third-most-populous county in the U.S.
The Harris County election drew national attention in part because 17 African-American women, all Democrats, won judgeships, a symbolic shift for one of the nationís most diverse cities. But it also demonstrates the growing political divide between more liberal cities and conservative rural areas that is evident even in red states like Texas, where every elected statewide official is a Republican.
