(Natural News) Though all eyes are on the White House right now, the congressional races this election cycle led to some notably positive outcomes for Republicans that bode well for the balance of power in our country, regardless of who ends up taking control of the executive branch.
Much to their horror, Democrats were unsuccessful at taking control of the Senate despite aggressive efforts to recruit new voters and motivate existing ones. Key races in Maine and South Carolina were both lost by Democrats, and despite picking up a few seats here and there, the Senate will still have a Republican majority.
While Democrats did flip two seats, one in Colorado and the other in Arizona, Republicans picked up one in Alabama, and appear poised to do the same in both North Carolina and Georgia, the latter of which has two seats both leaning towards the Republican contenders.
Michigan’s Senate race was almost an upset, but Sen. Gary Peters, a Democrat, will not be getting replaced by businessman John James after all. And in Montana, Sen. Steven Daines will remain in his seat, having defeated former Democrat presidential candidate Steve Bullock.
In Iowa, Sen. Joni Ernst, a Republican, held on to her seat against Democrat challenger Theresa Greenfield, while Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican, lost her seat to former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will also be staying put, leaving Republicans with their Senate majority.

Centrist Democrats say it’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go
As for the House, Democrats have thus far lost five seats while Republicans have gained six, with just a few remaining races still to be called as of this writing.
Though the Democrats will still maintain their majority in the House despite these losses, that majority has been further eroded due to the “red wave” that ultimately swept through, dashing all hopes of a “blue wave” this time around.
In response to this negative outcome, two moderate House Democrats are now in discussions about putting their support behind a challenger to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has become so far-left that she now believes Republicans to be “domestic enemies of the state.”
“He’s the only one prepared and positioned” to be Speaker, stated these two moderate Democrats about House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, a Democrat from New York who would likely prove to be far more effective at working with Republicans than Pelosi.
“He bridges moderates and progressives better than anyone,” they added. “And most importantly, he’s not Nancy Pelosi.”
Jeffries immediately shot down the proposal, however, indicating that he is focused on keeping his current position. Still, this chatter among House Democrats about ousting Pelosi is noteworthy, and is probably the best bet Democrats have at maintaining any relevance politically in the months and years to come.
Pelosi, by the way, has already joined the chorus of election thieves who maintain that Joe Biden has somehow already won the election, even though it has become clear that widespread fraud is taking place in key battleground states.
“It’s time for Democrats to elevate a new generation of leadership in both the House and the Senate,” one of the two Democrats pushing for a challenger to take down Pelosi indicated to The Hill.
“Americans are clearly afraid of ‘socialism,’ want safe streets and neighborhoods and to vote for people who they believe will help put more money in their pockets. While Democratic policies can adequately address those issues, our messaging mechanism clearly cannot.”
