Porter Projected To Win In Orange County As Democrats Take The Lead

The new House GOP standard-bearer, who will serve out the lame duck session as majority leader, indicated Republicans would actively protect Trump by countering Democratic efforts to execute oversight over the Trump administration.

McCarthy defeated Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, in the two-way race during a closed-door vote Wednesday afternoon.

Leadership posts within a party can be filled with a majority of caucus members, but the entire House elects the speaker.

McCarthy has been the House majority leader for four years.

Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana was named minority whip and Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming became the House Republican Conference Chair as her father former Vice President Dick Cheney, sporting a cowboy hat, looked on from the room. McCarthy doesn't dole out those positions - that's for the House GOP Steering Committee - but plenty of people on the Steering Committee are loyal to McCarthy and would heed his word.

Trump has told confidants that he wants Jordan, a fierce and skillful defender of the president on the cable news circuit, to be appointed ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee to repel possible impeachment proceedings against him, Politico reported Wednesday. Debbie Stabenow of MI was re-elected as Democratic policy committee chair. "It's not a racial thing", said Rep. Kathleen M. Rice, New York Democrat.

Republicans maintained their base of rural voters, which served as an advantage in Senate races in predominantly white heartland states, according to the Atlantic.

"We need to lay the groundwork to regain the majority so that we can continue working alongside President Trump to fulfill our promise to fundamentally change Washington", the California lawmaker wrote in the letter. "I helped build a majority from a deeper hole than this and I have what it takes to do it again".

Trump insults some extra reporters
And he has spared some reporters of color, such as Fox News White House correspondent Kevin Corke, who is black. Colbert's not the only one who feels Sanders should be fired.

Democrats have accused Republicans of manoeuvring to prevent full vote tallies, while Trump told The Daily Caller that voter fraud had tipped the contest into chaos.

"You stand up for the truth".

Porter benefited from the backlash to President Donald Trump among moderate suburban voters in California's 45th Congressional District ― one of seven Republican-controlled seats in a state that Hillary Clinton won in 2016.

History teacher Francine Werner '68 said that while many believe that the Democrats can only focus on one issue or the other, she feels they can successfully manage to address several.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (puh-LOH'-see) is challenging the Democrats who are fighting to stop her from becoming speaker to put forward an alternative. But since his election, he has changed course, saying instead the money must come from Congress and US taxpayers. Dan Meuser, a member-elect from Pennsylvania, said he's spoken with both men over the weekend about their plans for the next two years, and he hasn't made a decision.

At that point, McCarthy was running for speaker, but ran into opposition from the hard-line Freedom Caucus and withdrew his name for consideration. I think he's a very good conservative, showed up a lot of leadership. Porter's support for reinstating the deduction earned her the backing of the influential California and National Realtors Associations, which spent heavily on her behalf.

But the friendly talk papers over the infighting between the GOP's conservative and moderate flanks as lawmakers dole out blame after the midterm election losses that handed House Democrats the majority.
