Kevin McCarthy, the Republican leader of the House of Representatives, insisted that his party wants to introduce changes in the US. He tweeted that Americans are ready for a new direction and that Republicans in the House of Representatives are ready to provide it.
US President Joe Biden has congratulated the Republican Party. “I congratulate Speaker McCarthy on winning the Republican majority in the House of Representatives, and I look forward to working with you to deliver results for working families,” the White House statement said.
Who is the new announcer?
In the House of Representatives, Republicans currently have 218 seats and Democrats – 210. Votes are being counted and seven seats are still up for grabs. Kevin McCarthy will probably become the new Speaker, meaning Speaker of the House.
Democrats would retain control of the Senate — holding at least 50 of the 100 seats so far — but in the event of a tie, the chamber’s speaker, Vice President Kamala Harris, would hold the majority vote. Democrats could pick up another seat after the Dec. 6 runoff in Georgia.
