Republicans have secured a narrow majority in the House of Representatives, according to a projection from DecisionDeskHQ, ending the uniform Democratic control of Congress.
The outcome was projected by DecisionDeskHQ on Tuesday, one week after the midterm election. While some races are yet to be decided, the Republican Party has met the 218-seat threshold needed for majority.
The Republican victory will also end the speakership of Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA), who has served as the second in the presidential line of succession since Democrats took control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections.
Republicans were expected to sweep in the House, but following a series of unexpected losses in tight races across the country, the margin of victory is down to just a few seats.
