As expected, Senate Republican leader Mitchell McConnell of Kentucky and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY will continue in their positions.

President Donald Trump takes questions as he speaks during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Nov. 7, 2018, in Washington.

In other votes, House Republicans returned Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana as their whip, the No. 2 spot.

With the spectacle of a divided Congress imminent, McConnell heralded his party's increased majority in the Senate, but reiterated that he would try and find common ground with the Democrats.

Funding for the Department of Homeland Security and a handful of other agencies runs out December 7, and a partial shutdown would go into effect unless Congress and Trump act before then.

House Republicans voted by a large margin Wednesday to make McCarthy their leader in the next Congress, giving him a victory over a challenge by Rep. Jim Jordan, a prominent member of the Freedom Caucus. What's going on now is that, all over the United States, people are "finding" new ballots and demand that these be counted.
