House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has declared that Republicans will take back the House of Representatives.
A GOP takeover of the House would likely mean that McCarthy will become the speaker of the House for the 118th Congress.
“I want to thank the millions of supporters across this country,” McCarthy said on Nov. 9. “It is clear we are going to take the House back.”
At the time of publication, the Associated Press has called winners in 371 of the 435 House seats up for grabs. This includes 199 Republicans and 172 Democrats. AP reports that two Democrats have lost their seats so far.
