Global One (G1)— Tuesday, Nov. 6 was the midterms in the U.S.
That meant all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 Senate seats — not to mention several important state elections — were up for grabs.
In the Senate, the Republican party gained at least two seats — with quite a few races not yet finalized.
The House was a different story — the Democratic party retook the house, with a reported 220 seats as of the last count.
In state elections, it was more of a mixed bag — Democrats won governor races in so-called swing states like Michigan and Wisconsin, but Republicans won other swing states like Florida and Ohio.
There were also several “firsts” in the elections — two women became the first Muslim women to win a congressional election, two Native American women won an election for the first time and Colorado elected the nation’s first openly gay governor.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez meanwhile, became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
