Elections 2018: Democrats Win the House, Republicans Pad Majority in Senate

For many months, candidates have been pounding the pavement, knocking on doors and stumping for votes to have the honor of representing their constituents in Congress. Now the results are in. Democrats have won enough seats to take control of the House of Representatives, and the Republicans have increased their majority in the Senate. “IDFA congratulates the newly elected and re-elected members of the 116th Congress,” said Dave Carlin, senior vice president of legislative affairs and economic policy. “We look forward to working with them on issues important to the dairy industry.” Outcomes of specific races and ballot initiatives could affect policy decisions important to dairy companies. IDFA has analyzed these results for members.
