TBEN News host says midterm elections are ‘scorching indictment’ against Republican party

With the count still pending after the 2022 midterms, Congressional control still hangs in the balance, leaving Democrats relieved as Republicans row over their surprisingly weak performance.

The Democrats have so far lost no seats and have captured a Republican-occupied seat in Pennsylvania, which will now be represented by John Fetterman. The final composition of the chamber rests on Nevada, Arizona, and Georgia, all of which are Democratic defenses.

In the latter case, Senator Raphael Warnock and GOP challenger Herschel Walker now move to a runoff election on Dec. 6, as neither managed to secure 50 percent of the vote.

The house is still up for grabs, with Democrats controlling many districts expected to lose and even picking up some unexpectedly. However, it remains likely that Republicans will retake the chamber, albeit by a small majority.

President Joe Biden rode a victory lap on Wednesday. “While the press and experts are predicting a ‘giant red wave,’ it has not happened,” he told reporters. “And I know you were a little annoyed by my obsessive optimism, but I felt good throughout the process.”
