Democrat Katie Porter Unseats Mimi Walters; Young Kim Falls Behind

Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy on easily won an internal party election to take over the shrunken House GOP caucus, handing the seven-term Californian a familiar role of building the party back to a majority as well as protecting President Donald Trump's agenda.

Next in line for the GOP leadership hierarchy in the new Congress is Rep. Steve Scalise, the current No. 3 House Republican, who successfully vied for the position of minority whip in the new Congress. Scalise, as majority whip, gained a higher national profile after he was injured a year ago in a shooting during a Republican congressional baseball practice.

"We think he's absolutely our best political strategist, our best fundraiser, our best recruiter", said Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma.

House Republicans have elected to keep Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California at the head of party leadership, the Associated Press reports. She will only need the votes of a majority of House Democrats when elections are held this month, but will need 218 votes on the floor in January to actually be elected House Speaker. "If we resolve that I think the others will basically fall into place", Shelby said. "We have a lot of room to grow", he said.

As expected, Senate Republican leader Mitchell McConnell of Kentucky and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY will continue in their positions.

The US probably hasn't had a fair election in many years and this steal sounds the death knell of its democracy, since Trump seems strangely passive and can not or will not interfere.

Senate Democrats say they won't agree to US$5 billion, and Republicans said they intend to remind the president of the constraints imposed by the 60-vote margin that gives Democrats significant leverage in the Senate.

"I don't know how this is going to end", Senator John Cornyn said Thursday.

While the Republican Party did make some progress towards gender parity, with GOP Representative Kristi Noem set to become South Dakota's first female governor after defeating Democrat Billie Sutton in a tight election race, it did not see the same level of historic firsts that the Democratic Party enjoyed.

In news Wednesday that stunned Republicans from Orange County to Washington DC, Democrat Katie Porter suddenly moved ahead of Republican Rep. Mimi Walters as the counting of absentee ballots in California's 45 District continued.

In the only other competitive race, Rep. Gary Palmer of Alabama defeated David Schweikert to lead the Republican Policy Committee.

Rep. Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is running unopposed for the position of Republican conference chair, the third-ranking position in the leadership hierarchy with Republicans in the minority.

Through their victory in the House, the Democrats now have effective veto power over the Trump administration's legislative initiatives.

"There's overwhelming support for leader Pelosi to be speaker of the House", Rep. But since his election, he has changed course, saying instead the money must come from Congress and USA taxpayers.
