The 2018 midterm election was no Blue Wave — It was a push.

It was a sad night for House Republicans on Tuesday.
The GOP lost their majority in the House and as many as 34 seats to the Pelosi Democrats.

But Republicans picked up 4 (and likely 5 with Montana) new seats in the US Senate with wins in Florida, Missouri, Indiana and North Dakota.
Arizona, Montana are still being decided.

Dean Heller was the only GOP loss in the Nevada senate race.

Republicans also elected governors in Massachusetts, Maryland, Vermont and New Hampshire — along with Georgia, Florida and Iowa.

So President Trump gained seats in the US Senate and lost around 30 seats in the US House.

 

In 2010 the Republican Party gained 63 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, recapturing the majority, and making it the largest seat change since 1948 and the largest for any midterm election since the 1938 midterm elections
