Republicans keep control of Congress - The Republican Party has retained control of both houses of the U.S. Congress in elections on November 8, preserving majorities that could provide considerable legislative muscle to Republican President-elect Donald Trump. Republicans defended vulnerable Senate seats in swing states like Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, and New Hampshire, where a particularly strong Democratic turnout had the potential to go against their candidates. But with two Senate races still undecided, Republicans had locked up a slim majority in the 100-member upper house, allowing them to steer key votes over their Democratic rivals.
