(RoyalPatriot.com )- Republicans will retake control of the House of Representatives.
Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the House minority party in California, would most likely take over as speaker of the House for the 118th Congress.
McCarthy remarked on November 9: “I want to thank the millions of supporters around this country. It seems obvious that we will retake the House.”
“These results suggest a place for you in the Republican Party if you believe in freedom, hard effort, and the American dream,” added McCarthy. “We’re growing this party.”
Results show that Republicans made gains among Hispanic voters in Florida, with Miami-Dade County decisively supporting incumbent Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
Elaine Luria (D-VA), a member of the Jan. 6 Committee, was one of the seats that Republicans could convert. Her victory is considered a positive sign for the party’s future. The party, however, could not achieve its goal of flipping Virginia’s 7th and 10th congressional districts, which border the Washington metropolitan region.
McCarthy’s upbeat statement appears to be in line with the anticipated outcomes, but most media outlets have not declared the House race.
Around two in the morning, McCarthy added, “Now, let me tell you, you’re out late, but when you wake up tomorrow, we will be in the majority, and Nancy Pelosi will be in the minority.” EST following a long election evening.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had refused to accept that Democrats would lose the lower chamber, and instead, she remained upbeat about her party’s prospects.
While many elections were still too close to call, Pelosi noted that House Democratic candidates and members were “clearly surpassing expectations nationwide.”
According to her spokesperson, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will discuss her “plans” with Democratic leadership on Thursday. This choice will significantly affect Democrats in their new role as the House minority.
There is no word on when or if the 82-year-old speaker will deliver a floor speech, but a source has said that Pelosi took two different floor speeches home on Wednesday.
