With essentially all House races called, Republicans are on pace to hold the House majority by approximately the same margin that Democrats enjoyed in the 117th Congress—around five seats. On the heels of Democrat John Fetterman’s defeat of Dr. Mehmet Oz, Republican, to flip retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania, Democrats will return to the Senate majority.
Several ABC staff and members also won office in November’s election. Those include U.S. Sen.-elect Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla.; U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker, R-Pa., U.S. Rep. Carol Miller, R-W.Va., Gov.
