Published

on

In the last 24 years, Democrats have only controlled the House of Representatives for four years. Now, Democrats are in control once again.

NBC News is projecting that the Democratic Party will gain at least the 23 seats that it needs to take back the House of Representatives.

Congressional Black Caucus members have said that they might challenge Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) but Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), who typically challenges Pelosi, said he will not run for Speaker.

Democrats had hoped for a big, blue wave and the night didn’t result in that, but it did give Democrats enough wins to take back some power.

Joe Biden apologizes for ‘partisan lynching’ comments about Bill Clinton’s impeachment

Published

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."

The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.
