Republicans have secured the majority in the House of Representatives for the 118th U.S. Congress and Biden has comments. Upon The Associated Press projecting Republican Mike Garcia to win re-election on California’s 27th Congressional District seat, the GOP was able to secure the necessary 218 seats to gain majority in the House. Currently, Democrats have 211 seats with voting still in process, more than a week after election day. Now President Biden has come out to discuss the win.
Biden began his comments by congratulating Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Cali, for his party’s victory. Then he mentioned that the voters have spoken before promising to “work with anyone – Republican or Democrat – willing to work with [him] to deliver results for [the voters].”
Democrats have held the House majority since the 2018 midterm elections and fought to keep the majority this time around. Though Republicans focused on the most crucial issues to the voters and made sure voters knew those issues would be the first the party would look into upon winning, especially the rise in crime and the vast economic issues. While Democrats chose to focus on abortion rights, despite many other issues raking higher in importance for voters this cycle.
The GOP has promised to use the newfound control of the House to launch investigations into Hunter Biden’s business dealings, the January 6th Committee findings, and the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
