President Joe Biden took a victory lap on Wednesday after Democrats had a better night that expected during the midterm elections on Tuesday evening.
The president praised Democrats’ performance in many House races and holding many Senate races. A “red tsunami” failed to materialize after Democrats held many House seats they had won in 2018, including in the suburbs.
“While the press and the pundits are predicting a ‘giant red wave,’ it didn’t happen,” he told reporters. “And I know you were somewhat miffed by my obssessive optimism but I felt good during the whole process.”
In addition, Senator Maggie Hassan held her seat in New Hampshire and Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman flipped Pennsylvania’s Senate seat after a brutal contest.
“While any seat lost is painful, some good Democrats didn’t win there last night, Democrats had a strong night,” he told reporters at a press conference. “We lost fewer seats in the House of Representatives than any Democratic president’s first midterm election in the last 40 years, and we had the best midterm for governors since 1986.”
