Midterm Election: Republican and Democratic watch parties

Senate Republicans assured themselves of a majority late Tuesday, but Democrats flipped the House of Representatives. Ted Cruz fended off a blue wave-propelled campaign by Democratic challenger U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke. Watch parties were organized around Dallas to see the 2018 midterm results.
