Surprise .. Arizona increases Democratic Senate seats and draws with Republicans

It seems that the American mid-term elections could bring, in the next few hours, a change of numbers, in favor of the Democratic Party, especially as regards the House of Representatives, despite the advance of the Republicans.

The Edison Center for Statistics reported that Democrats have won 203 parliamentary seats today, up from 211 for Republicans so far, while 218 seats are required to win a majority in the House of Representatives.

The Associated Press reported that the number of Democratic seats had risen to 200.

And the elderly ?!

As for the Senate, the race is fierce, and the two parties have so far drawn, each winning 49 seats, while the majority require 51 seats.

In the most recent development, Democrat and former astronaut Mark Kelly won a seat in the Arizona Senate, defeating Republican challenger Blake Masters, with the Nevada and Georgia seats still undecided.

While a number of observers have indicated that the Democratic Party, to which President Joe Biden belongs, has become, with this recent victory, only one seat from retaining control of the Senate.

Punitive vote

On Tuesday, the Americans went to the polls to renew 435 seats for all members of the House of Representatives, a third of the Senate, 35, as well as 36 state governors.

While the midterm elections that are held two years after the presidential election often constitute a “punitive vote” for the current administration in the United States!

It was reported that after a fierce bipartisan blue-and-red campaign, focusing on inflation and rising prices, as well as fuel, abortion and other issues, Republicans were confident of depriving Biden of his majority in Congress, especially since his popularity was waning.

But the Democratic Party has succeeded in to some extent reduced his losses, better than expected, and prevented former President Donald Trump from creating a “big tide” in Congress.
