This is a great victory as is the success re the House of Representatives, I feel the Senate will take some more time.
Currently Trump is still rolling on the final Obama wave and many of his Executive Orders and other ruling have yet to see any progression in many areas of the US.
Trump’s base are still believing his Rhetoric has they have, yet, not received any problems with Trump’s current actions, but they will and when it starts to hurt them they will hopefully see the light.
Currently they are clutching at straws for they have no one, other than Trump to believe in, but Trump will crash eventually.
What I hope is that the us will not have crashed too far in order to recover.
Bear with it and do not be too disheartened that the Senate did not also fall to yourselves. The Rep. Jacky Rosen (D) is only the start, but others will follow in time.
Rep. Jacky Rosen (D) has defeated Sen. Dean Heller (R) in Nevada’s toss-up Senate race, giving Democrats a win in one of their few pickup opportunities of the cycle.
Heller, who was running for a second term, conceded the race shortly before it was called by The Associated Press. A spokesman for Heller’s campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Rosen’s victory in Nevada marks a major win for Senate Democrats in an otherwise rough election night, with Republicans poised to expand their Senate majority after unseating several red-state Democrats. The state was also a bright spot for the party in 2016 when Democrats swept the state.
“When it came time to elect a Senator who would stand up for Nevadans, the choice was clear. Jacky Rosen has always stood out because of her commitment to serve her community, and now her state – and do what is right even if it’s hard. We need more problem solvers like Jacky and I look forward to welcoming her to the U.S. Senate,” said Sen. Chris Van Hollen(D-Md.), the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Rosen’s victory will make Nevada only one of seven states that has been represented by two female senators simultaneously.
“Women are winning up and down the ballot. This is a historic night for us,” Rosen said in a speech claiming victory early Wednesday morning.
Republicans argued that the deck was stacked against them after Democrats swept the state in 2016 and have dedicated years to building a strong turnout machine.
Steven Law—the president of the Senate Leadership Fund, which has ties to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)—said that group spent more than $16 million in the state to try to “make it a fair fight.”
