Republicans easily capture Senate majority gain at least 14 House seats
AUSTIN Texas (Texas Insider Report)
Im encouraged that the American people have chosen a new direction for our country
. It is clear the policies of the last six years are not working and now the American people have spoken by entrusting Republicans with majorities in both houses of Congress.
I look forward to working with a willing partner in the Senate to secure our border
ensure our national security is strong and restoring Americas standing on the world stage.
At home the American people expect us to get the country moving again and we can do this by reducing spending and reforming our broken tax code creating jobs with commonsense legislation such as the Keystone XL pipeline and repealing the burdensome healthcare laws
this administration has forced upon the taxpayers of this nation."
Cong. Michael McCaul Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee following election results showing that Republicans had easily swept to a majority in the U.S. Senate while gaining at least 14 House seats prior to the 114th Congress beginning in January.
