WAITING GAME: Key races still not called in Midterm Elections

Published

on

All-important 2022 Midterm Elections will determine the balance of power in Washington D.C.

Following Tuesday’s midterm elections across America, there are still four Senate races yet to be called in Arizona, Nevada, Alaska, and Georgia.

While Alaska will likely stay in Republican hands as votes move through the state’s ranked-choice voting system— Arizona and Nevada are continuing to count mail-in ballots.

Meanwhile, the race for Georgia’s Senate seat is headed to a runoff election on December 6.

Out of the candidates former President Donald Trump backed in the 2022 midterm elections–174 won and only 9 lost.

However, Democrats and Republicans are framing the results very differently.

“You know, Tuesday was a good day for America,” President Joe Biden said. “A good day for democracy and it was a strong night for Democrats.”

“It’s worth pausing and reflecting what was accomplished last night,” Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican from Texas said.

“Number one, Nancy Pelosi lost her job; we’ve taken the gavel out of Nancy Pelosi hands; we’re going to have a Republican majority in the House, we’re going to have Republican chairman of every committee, we’re going to have leadership in the house that that that has moved out of the hands of other crazy Democrats,” he said.

Election officials are now saying that tabulations in key races will continue over the weekend and won’t be announced until counting is completed next week.
