Tuesday's midterm elections have done more than surge Democrats into a respectable House majority: It also wiped out a large chunk of Republicans' support in suburban strongholds, portending a significant shift in the political alignment of white suburbanites in the Trump era. Republican Rep. Martha McSalley held a slim lead over Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat. It was a role reversal from just days ago, when he warned voters of her "radical" agenda.
An exception is the now ubiquitous Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who safely won her House seat in the Democratic stronghold of NY, as was predicted.
Yet ascent of the California Democrat is nowhere near guaranteed.
The GOP at long last needs to work diligently toward an alternative to the Affordable Care Act, since health care was the biggest issue at the polls.

The Gunners' tie was enough to send the team to the knockout stages of the competition, joining Premier League rivals Chelsea . The forward jumped for a header and appeared to land awkwardly and collapsing in serious pain.
At her news conference, she said Democrats would seek compromise with the president, but "must stand our ground". "She's fought long and hard". "The fact is we'd like to work together". And the Democrats could see a struggle inside the party over how aggressively to confront the Trump administration. But becoming speaker requires a majority of the full House, 218 votes, and her slim majority - now at 222 - leaves her little cushion. In winning the House, there is hope among Democrats, as well as voters, that presidential power amassed during unified government will be curbed.
"But it may seem that way because we are coming off a two-year drought of no subpoenas", said Representative Gerald Connolly of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Oversight subcommittee on government operations.

"Ya es tiempo de un cambio!" he echoed his statement in Spanish.
Democratic newcomer Sharice Davids defeated incumbent Rep. Kevin Yoder in Kansas to become the United States' first LGBT Indigenous person in Congress. A political action committee formed by Gabby Giffords, the former Arizona congresswoman wounded in a shooting, spent almost US$5 million.

He said he would defer to staff on the Joint Committee on Taxation in Congress to determine what information might be requested and who would have access to it.

"We always knew these races are going to be close", said Rep. Katherine Clark of MA, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts.
"If subpoenas go flying, and lawsuits go flying, you're in the mud with [Trump] - and that's what he wants".
Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, who ran against Pelosi past year as a centrist alternative, said colleagues want to do what's best for the new members coming from districts that just flipped from Republicans.
The GOP looks poised for a net loss of only two seats in more sparsely populated districts, and will still hold an overwhelming majority of small-town districts.
"The one thing that keeps emerging in the conversation is, What do we have to do to protect our new members?"
"We still live in a world where women face that", Coyle said, "and she hit the right tone in responding to all of that while staying true to herself".
He took credit for Republicans having "defied history" by consolidating their grip on the Senate. Only 48 percent have a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party (versus 44 for the Republican Party), and only 31 percent have a positive view of Nancy Pelosi.
Republican leadership elections are set for next week. He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the USA and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi.
