Democrats edging toward California blowout in US House


"I think that progressives of my generation would like to see somebody who is more independent of the corporate class that does not reflect a new generation of progressive Democrats" lead the House Democrats, Konst added.

At Tuesday's meeting, McCarthy and Jordan encountered frustration, finger-pointing and questions as lawmakers sorted through an election defeat and began considering new leadership for the next congressional session.

According to President Donald Trump, who has been continuing to shock the world with his repetitive, unexpected decisions and actions, the victor of the elections is he and his Republican Party. The California Democrat said, "Come on in".

"The more anyone focuses on internal party dynamics, the less productive it is", Hill said.

Republicans lost the control of the House for the first time in eight years but remains the majority in the Senate during the midterm elections held last week.

The outcome gives the president two allies positioned to help him. Jordan arranged television commercials and other advertising to support his campaign for House leader, an unusual step.

"Some key things we told them we were going to do, we didn't", Jordan said.

The most closely watched leadership race in Congress is Democrat Nancy Pelosi's bid to reclaim the job of House speaker, a role she had from 2007 to 2011, when she was the first woman in that post.

Senate Democrats are keeping their team headed by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, even though one of the two new Democratic senators-elect, Krysten Sinema of Arizona, has said she wouldn't vote for him. Both were selected by acclamation. She faces GOP Sen.

Ernst called her selection to the leadership ranks "a great honor". "So he'll get a handful of votes, it'll be McCarthy though". Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, the Freedom Caucus chairman, called it a "gentlemanly" debate.

McConnell led the GOP to victory in the midterm Senate elections, albeit by a narrow margin.

It could be tricky, as Trump has called for new funding for his wall on the southern U.S. border with Mexico, an issue that has divided some congressional Republicans.

On the Democratic side, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was re-elected by affirmation, according to a source familiar.

On another front, Trump has threatened to let some federal agency funding lapse unless Congress provides full funding for the border wall.

He said "billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests". A series of wildfires in Northern California's wine country last fall killed 44 people and destroyed more than 5,000 homes.

It's unclear how hard Republicans will be willing to fight for the wall, given that dozens of House GOP lawmakers are serving their final days in Congress after retiring or losing their re-election races. Others, such as Rep. -elect Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, have said they will oppose Pelosi.

"I think that we're going through a very natural transition". "And that's job No. 1 in getting back to the majority".

"We have 10 years left to plan and implement a Green New Deal before cataclysmic climate disaster", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, thanking Pelosi for the move.

That experience will serve her well in leadership, according to Tom Cronin, a political science professor at Colorado College who advised Cheney on her senior thesis. Voters largely panned the party's latest signature accomplishment, Trump's tax cuts, and Republicans have all but abandoned the tea party promises to cut the deficit and repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's health care law.

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said he told McCarthy this week he would be voting for Jordan.

More important for the president, Whitaker "would assume final decision-making authority over the special counsel probe instead of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein", the Post said.
