The Democrats have won back control of the House of Representatives in a midterm election win that will check Donald Trump’s agenda over the next two years and lead to a multitude of investigations into his business dealings and his administration.
The party needed a gain of 23 seats to break the Republicans’ eight-year hold on the House that began with the tea party revolt of 2010. By early morning on Wednesday they had picked up 24.
The Republican Party maintained control of the Senate, this means a new era of divided government is set to begin
