A Fresh Start In Congress
With what appears to be a striking flip of the U.S. House of Representatives, Democrats have a tremendous opportunity to forge a fresh start.
Washington may contribute to the margin of control. Early returns show Republicans might lose the 8th Congressional District seat with Democrat Kim Schrier leading Republican Dino Rossi.
While Republicans still control the Senate, new House leadership will force a reset of President Donald Trump’s agenda, forcing him and Republicans to dictate less and cooperate more. Democrats will be empowered to investigate a growing list of concerns about the Trump administration.
