US Mid-term elections
nationwide and the balance of power in almost all state legislatures
Millions of voters across the United States will today decide which party controls both houses of Congress, 40 governorships nationwide and the balance of power in almost all state legislatures.
All 435 seats in the House of Representative are on the ballot, with 35 Senate seats in play.
Republicans and Democrats alike have brought out their heavy-hitters to make the closing arguments in a race seen as reshaping the direction of the country that could either embolden the Presidency of Donald Trump or provide a firm check on his agenda.
