In one of the most anticipated midterm elections in decades and a race that was widely interpreted as a referendum on President Donald Trump’s tumultuous first two years in office, Democrats won control of the House of Representatives. Republicans retained control of the United States Senate and expanded their majority. Democrats also made gains at the State level, capturing seven governorships. A number of key races in New Jersey and New York gave Democrats the gains they needed to regain control of the House for the first time since 2011. The New Jersey-New York region grew decidedly bluer and a number of key races contributed to Democratic takeover of the House.
