A republican wave, where?

The elected official was more generally pleased with the results of the Democratic Party in the mid-term elections, ironically that the announced Republican “wave” had not taken place. “Who would have thought two months ago that this red wave would become a very small droplet, and again…”, she launched.

The elected also wanted to salute the results in the Senate, the day after the announcement of the victory of a Democratic candidate in the state of Nevada, which allows the party to keep control of the upper house. “It’s such a cause for celebration,” she said with a smile.

Asked whether she would apply to remain at the head of the Democratic procession in the House of Representatives, the current “speaker” did not wish to come forward. “My decision, again, will be based on the wishes of my family and the wishes of my colleagues, but none of this will be considered until we know the outcome” of the midterm elections.
