McCarthy Wins Minority Leader Race

"We will work with anybody across that aisle if they are there to work to move America forward".

Asked whether Mr. Trump's combative style hurt his party in the midterm elections, where Democrats won control of the House, McCarthy said he is focused on moving from campaign modern to policy mode.

That became unnecessary when Republicans lost the House on Election Day, as the race for minority leader is considered much lower stakes than the race to be speaker.

There was a "blue wave'" during the midterm elections, and that wave carried the Democratic Party to victory in the House of Representatives.

Democrat Katie Porter has seized a Republican-held U.S. House seat in the heart of Southern California's Reagan country. That means Mrs. Pelosi must have almost unanimous support of her caucus to secure the post. That would be enough to sink her bid in the January 3 floor vote. "There are places for improvements, and there are also places he was been very successful at", he said. "And whatever we can do in a reasonable fashion, to get it done", Shelby said. "And we don't even give her a gold watch".

Other Pelosi allies played down the threat.

Senate Democrats reelected Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and Minority Whip Sen. "Everything I've seen, she has the votes". Lisa Murkowski stepped away from her post after losing a primary challenge. It's not a where you come [from] geographic thing.

GOP Rep. Peter King of NY rose to object, saying his view was that Republicans lost ground over the GOP tax cuts that reduced deductions for some filers. "It is [that] this leadership team needs to turn the reins over to the next generation of Democrats". "We need to be making decisions that are evidence based".

Sen. Deb Fischer on Wednesday lost her bid for a Republican Senate leadership position after a GOP caucus contest with Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the GOP whip, is being forced out by term limits.

House Republicans chose Rep. Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) for the role of House minority leader on Wednesday, and elevated Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) to GOP conference chairperson.

McCarthy beat Rep. Jim Jordan of OH, a founder of the far-right House Freedom Caucus, in Wednesday's closed-door elections.

McCarthy has also positioned himself as a close ally of Trump and a leader who can help Republicans win back control of Congress.

All of the new Republicans are white, and just one is female.

"I think that it's awesome to have a young voter turnout as large as we did", Rachel Grode '19 said. This year, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI made history as the first Muslim women elected to Congress, while Davids of Kansas and Deb Haaland of New Mexico will be the first Native American women. Roy Blunt of Missouri are expected to take over the third- and fourth-ranking spots.

Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana won a unanimous vote to become whip, the same position he held as the majority party.
