Republicans are vying to keep control over the House and Senate, as Democrats hope for a ‘blue wave’ comeback.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives, as well as 35 out of 100 seats in the Senate are up for grabs. Governors may change in 36 states following the election.

Democrats have so far flipped two seats out of 23 they need to reclaim the House. In Virginia, Jennifer Wexton has defeated Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock, while in Florida, former Clinton administration official Donna Shalala claimed 27th Congressional District, finishing ahead of Republican TV anchor Maria Elvira Salazar.
