Trump Claims “Very Big Win” Despite Losing House

Roll Call reports:

Even though his party lost control of the House, President Donald Trump declared a “big victory” on Wednesday morning as he focused on Republicans picking up seats in the Senate.

The Associated Press projects the chamber will remain in Republican hands, with a Democratic takeover bid blocked after losses in Indiana and North Dakota. But Democrats, fueled by wins in key suburbs, will control the House come November.

The president spent the final days and weeks of the midterm cycle mostly campaigning for GOP Senate and gubernatorial candidates in battleground states. Many of those candidates were victorious, allowing Trump to focus his messaging there and declare himself a GOP savior.
