Republicans offically retain control over House
Many Republican representatives ran unopposed. However, the ones who faced Democratic rivals managed to squash them by a landslide in traditionally Republican areas, such as Oklahoma’s Frank D. Lucas (R) who defeated his opponent by 56 percent.
While the Republicans may control the House, Democrats did make gains in new areas. Ruben Kihuen is leading against his Republican opponent, Cresent Hardy, who is the incumbent representative of Nevada’s District 4.
Thank you to all Republicans who turned out this year to help us hold the House. A Better Way Forward starts now.— Paul Ryan (@PRyan) November 9, 2016
This will be good news for Senator Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) who will be keeping his position as Speaker of the House.
Republicans officially won the House with 231 districts.
