Democrat leads in last undecided House race

Democrat leads in last undecided House race

U.S. House Republicans on Wednesday elected Kevin McCarthy as the House minority leader, the top Republican in the lower chamber in the new Congress starting January.

McCarthy is now the House Majority Leader, the No. 2 position under House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is retiring at the end of the year.

Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy are running for House minority leader.

Meadows told reporters on Wednesday that he believes Jordan has "earned" the spot of ranking member on the Judiciary Committee.

"History is against us", he said.

Pictures of the newly elected members of the House of Representatives have highlighted a stark difference between the diversity of incoming Democrats and incoming Republicans. According to The New York Times, the Democrats flipped 30 seats, the majority of which were in suburban districts.

314 Action, the advocacy group pushing for more scientist-politicians, spent about $2.5 million through its political action committee this cycle. Democrat Joseph Kopser, a former college professor with an engineering degree who became a tech entrepreneur, lost in solid Republican central Texas territory, though he came close.

The biggest action is among House Democrats, who won the majority after eight years. He won by 159-43 among House Republicans.

In his race for minority leader, McCarthy positioned himself as a close ally of Trump. The outcome gives the president two allies positioned to help him.

Through their victory in the House, the Democrats now have effective veto power over the Trump administration's legislative initiatives.

Liz Cheney ran unopposed for the No. 3 spot, after criticizing Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.) in a dear colleague letter on November 7.

"I'll have to see how it plays out".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (puh-LOH'-see) is challenging the Democrats who are fighting to stop her from becoming speaker to put forward an alternative. "Doable. Not what you want sometimes, what's doable", said Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby, who will attend the White House meeting along with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senator John Thune, the No 3 Republican.

Senate Republicans are welcoming the first woman to their leadership team in years, with Iowa Sen.

Both Republicans leveled the accusations after they steadily lost ground in the continuing tabulation of tens of thousands of ballots. Ernst called her selection "a great honor". As of Wednesday afternoon it was not clear where Jordan or Meadows would land. Jordan called for House Republicans to fight with the same "intensity" as President Donald Trump on his priorities.

"I think that it's awesome to have a young voter turnout as large as we did", Rachel Grode '19 said. Jerry Nadler of NY.

"We used to own the suburbs", King said. I wish we had more progressive voters in Florida.

McCarthy relishes an underdog role, which channels the spirit of his hometown of Bakersfield in California's central valley, where he worked his way up from a congressional aide.
