Fox News can now project that the Democratic Party will retake control of the United States House of Representatives.
“Democrats will retake control of the House of Representatives,” posted Fox Election Headquarters.
“The projected win by Democrats will be the first time they’ve controlled the House in eight years. Their gain deals a major setback to President Trump’s legislative agenda and could potentially open the door to investigations into Trump and his administration, including a possible impeachment. Although the exact size of the Democratic majority is not yet clear, Democrats will soon have to decide whether to restore Nancy Pelosi to her old job as Speaker of the House,” adds the forecast.

ARMAGEDDON AGAIN: Pelosi Says ‘CIVILIZATION AT RISK’ in 2018 Midterms
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her anti-Trump rhetoric this week, saying “civilization as we know it as at risk” should the Republicans continue to lead Congress following the 2018 midterm elections.
Pelosi was speaking with Rolling Stone magazine when she was asked to comment on how the Democrats were prepared to flip districts won by President Trump in 2016; saying “How do you narrow it down?”
“Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election. We have to win. We have to win. So you can’t spread your money too thinly, because you can run the risk,” said the leading Democrat.
“If the election were today – no question we would win. But you have to be aware of the undercurrents. Because you don’t know what can come along – and what comes along eclipses what you’re doing,” she added.
Pelosi’s comments come as the over-hyped “blue wave” predicted for this November continues to crash and burn, with some polls showing the once double-digit Democrat advantage reduced to just a few points.

BACK OFF: Moderate Dems Urge NY SOCIALIST to ‘Cool It’ Before 2018 Midterms
New York socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself in hot water among her fellow Democrats this week, with liberal legislators telling the left-wing superstar to “cool it” before the 2018 midterm elections.
Cortez made national headlines this week after she suddenly referred to Israeli settlers as the “occupiers of Palestine” during a recent interview; sparking a fierce backlash from her moderate colleagues
“She’s carrying on and she ain’t gonna make friends that way,” Rep. Bill Pascrell told the Hill. “Joe conceded, wished her well, said he would support her … so she doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.”
When pressed on whether Cortez was ruffling feathers among her fellow Democrats, Pascrell didn’t hold back.
“Yes,” he said. “No doubt about it.”
“Meteors fizz out,” added Democratic Rep. Hastings. “What she will learn in this institution is that it’s glacial to begin with, and therefore no matter how far you rise, that’s just how far you will ultimately get your comeuppance.”
