Donald Trump Wns Presidency
Congressional & Senate Races
President-elect Donald Trump
Around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, the state of Pennsylvania was called for Trump, then he had 20 electoral votes added to his 254 which placed him over the top. He won several key battleground states such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and North Carolina, to name a few. Donald Trump will now be our nation's 45 president.
In other races such as the U.S. Senate, Illinois Senator Mark Kirk was defeated by Illinois Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth, a former Iraq veteran who lost both of her legs when she was in Iraq. She's been a Congresswoman since 2013. Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire was defeated by Maggie Hussan. Both the House and Senate remains in Republican hands. So when the 115th Congress convenes next year, both Houses will be in Republican hands and we'll have a Republican president.
