Republicans may control at least one chamber of the US Congress, according to analysts

The Republican Party, also referred to as the GOP, is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States.

US President Joe Biden has congratulated a number of US congressmen and governors from the Democratic Party on election victory, the White House press service said.

According to the press service, Democrat Majority Leader of the US Senate Chuck Schumer, as well as the elected governors of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Colorado were among those who received phone calls from Biden on Tuesday.

The United States is holding its midterm congressional elections on November 8 to elect all members of the House of Representatives and one third of the Senate. Citizens will also elect the governors of 36 states and three overseas territories. Alaska and Hawaii will be the last to end the vote by 08:00 Moscow time on Wednesday.

According to local analysts, it is possible that Republicans may receive control over at least one chamber of the US Congress which would help them block the majority of US President Joe Biden’s initiatives for the next two years.
