The Republican Party achieves a majority in the United States House of Representatives

The Republican Party has achieved the majority and control of the House of Representatives after a scrutiny that has lasted more than a week since the mid-term elections that were held on November 8. Democrats maintain control of the Senate.

As reported by CNN, the Republicans have managed to 218 of the 435 seatsthe minimum necessary to control this camera. The Democrats have, for now, 210 seats and lose 11 seats compared to the previous elections, much less than those indicated by the projections.
