Edison Institute: US Republicans need only one seat to dominate the Senate


According to IRNA’s report on Wednesday from Reuters news agency; So far, during the competition for 435 seats in the House of Representatives, Republicans have won 206 seats and Democrats have won 187 seats.

In calculating the seats transferred from one party to another party, seven new seats created during the rezoning of congressional constituencies and also 2 contests in which one Democrat and one Republican present in this House, due to the new divisions with They face each other, it is not counted.

On Wednesday, one day after the 2022 mid-term elections of the US Congress, US President Joe Biden stated that it was a good day for democracy and America, and sarcastically pleaded with the republic’s rivals: “The red wave did not occur.”

“The Great Red Wave” is the term used by the Republicans in America about their possible victory in this election. Biden’s statements come while, according to reports, the Republicans are leading in the US House of Representatives compared to the Democrats.

Biden said about the 2022 mid-term elections of the US Congress: I think it was a good day for democracy and a good day for America. Of course, the voters in the transparent elections said that they were desperate, I understand that.

The President of the United States, whose speech was broadcast live on CNN, added: “The American people have spoken and proved that democracy is our identity.” The media expected a big red wave, but it didn’t happen and they expected us to do well.

Biden called the participation of the American people in the congressional mid-term elections historic and said: “Voters are clearly disappointed, and I understand this considering the conditions of the last two years.”

The American president continued: We are optimistic about the position of the American people regarding what we have achieved.

According to IRNA; If the Republicans can take control of each of the Houses of Representatives and the Senate, they can effectively stop the current Democratic President Joe Biden’s plans for the remaining two years of his presidency.

Republicans can control investigative committees in Congress or launch new investigations into issues such as Biden’s son’s trade deals with China or the sudden withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

US President Joe Biden has said that if the Republicans take control of Congress in the mid-term elections, he will face the risk of impeachment.

The Republicans do not need a majority of the Senate to impeach Biden, but a majority of the House of Representatives is needed to approve the articles of impeachment, but a two-thirds majority of the Senate is needed to condemn and remove the president.
