In Florida, GOP candidate Rick Scott appears to have defeated Democratic Sen. Trump, like he did on Wednesday, has occasionally talked up bipartisan negotiations on issues like immigration reform, only to eventually pull back and side with Republican hardliners and step up his own anti-immigrant attacks.
Nearly all of the House Democratic gains came from the suburbs: They are projected to flip over two dozen seats in primarily suburban districts, sweeping out once-comfortable Republican incumbents including Reps. Republicans have picked up at least one seat in the Senate, with races in Arizona and MS remaining undecided. And the Democrats could see a struggle inside the party over how aggressively to confront the Trump administration.

He's confirmed so many circuit judges ― many of whom are strongly anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ rights and anti-voting rights, and almost all of whom are ideologues handpicked by the conservative Federalist Society ― that 1 in 7 seats on the US circuit courts are now filled by judges nominated by Trump.
