Republicans likely to retain Senate, Trump hails ‘tremendous success’

Washington: With the United States midterm polls coming towards an end and marking a clear majority win for the Democrats in the House of Representatives and Republicans in the Senate, president Donald Trump thanked citizens for the “tremendous success”.

“Tremendous success tonight. Thank you to all!” the tweet read.

However, the White House has called a lid, meaning President Trump will not speak tonight, according to CNN.

In the light of the midterm results, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders showed up with a more positive perspective with regards to the midterm results going to be declared shortly, adding that it’s been a “good night” for Trump.

Winning a majority in the US Senate, Republican candidate Ron DeSantis is set to become the 46th governor in Florida after defeating Democrat Andrew Gillum.

Meanwhile, Republican Mike DeWine is likely to retain the office of Ohio governor as he has comfortably edged past Democrat Richard Cordray.

In Michigan, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer has reportedly managed to bring to an end an eight-year stint of Republican Rick Snyder.

The US midterm elections took place in a total of 435 seats of House of Representatives and 35 seats in the US Senate.
