Default 2018 Mid Term Final Results

Ok, so what are the final results? Did the Republicans hold the Senate and House or did the Democrats take control?

Waiting for election results is like waiting on your grade from a group project.....you know you did your part but you are worried everyone else screwed it up.

Why have so many Republicans turned on Cruz? I could understand if it were Cornyn. I've read that the hardcore trumpsters are turning on him but I don't want to believe that. If so they are eat up with the dumbass.

Only 48% of votes in. I would have thought the early voting favored Cruz.

Im guessing Beto is up because the urban areas have reported their results moreso than the rest of the state. Keep calm....

It blows my mind how we elect a Republican Gov in a landslide and lose Cruz.

Not Cruz. His party sold him out on that. Cruz, lee, and rand paul stood against Obama care. They were sold out by the likes of Cornyn. Perhaps the rest of Texas wanted Obamacare more than I thought. Lol

Beto was in the lead with 5.9% of precincts reporting.....Cruz now leads by 1.8% with 16.3% reporting

Must have been a mistake.....now it showing something different. When I refresh it shows the above and then changes to lesser numbers.....not sure what is going on with that.

Give it time Fox News and let the results come in before you start trying to tell me what to believe. They are becoming more and more like clinton news network ever dam day.

That's why I changed and only watch One America News nowadays

One of, if not the best economic numbers in American history, best employment numbers in a lifetime and half the country is still brain dead.
Thanks education system, thanks socialist media.
