Republicans are in a race to win control of the US House of Representatives – News

With the results of the US midterm elections in, the Republican Party is one step closer to taking control of the country’s House of Representatives this Tuesday (15).

The party needs 218 seats out of 435 seats in the Lok Sabha to win power. In the past few hours, Republicans have won New York, California, Oregon and Arizona. Americans still await 14 results, with Democrats holding 205 seats so far.


Despite the results, Republicans were far from predictions. President Joe Biden called the midterm elections a test of American democracy at a time when hundreds of Republican candidates embraced former President Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

Trump has repeatedly used his appeal among far-right conservatives to support GOP-nominated candidates for congressional, gubernatorial and local elections.


However, he is credited with promoting candidates who failed to appeal to a broad enough electorate, resulting in a mediocre performance for Republicans.

The results fueled confusion and fatigue by the former Republican president and raised questions about the viability of his potential 2024 White House bid.
