They could also force the President to scale back his legislative ambitions, possibly dooming his promises to fund a border wall with Mexico, pass a second major tax-cut package or carry out his hardline policies on trade.
That was enough to give pundits confidence in calling the overall race for a majority in the House.
Those Republican candidates who run for office with Trump at the top of the ticket will have a hard time establishing their own political identities - and they may not want to, as U.S. presidents by and large win their second terms.
Trump has already been trying out defensive arguments, noting that midterm losses are typical for the party in the White House, pointing out a high number of GOP retirements and stressing that he has kept his focus on the Senate.
And Rep. Adam Schiff, slated to become chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has vowed to probe alleged Trump campaign-Russia collusion.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Nancy Pelosi is telling Democratic lawmakers and supporters that elections are about the future and "thank you all for making the future better for all of America's children".
"We can raise all boats, together, and we are (doing that) in New York", Cuomo said.
Trump, who campaigned aggressively in the last several weeks, expressed satisfaction over the results and described this as tremendous success.
Speaker Joe Straus, a San Antonio Republican who ousted a fellow Republican with help from House Democrats in 2009, is retiring.
Knowing that House Democrats will not approve funding for a wall along the United States border, for example, will not keep Trump from continuing to make it an issue. And only twice in the past eight decades has the president's party picked up House seats in the midterms.
Markets in Asia and Europe mostly rose on Wednesday, but analysts warned about the economic impact from gridlock on Capitol Hill left the two houses of Congress split between Democrats and Republicans.
Every seat in the House, 35 seats in the 100-member Senate and 36 of the 50 state governorships were up for grabs.
The tax law was particularly problematic for Republicans in New Jersey, where at least three GOP-held seats flipped. In the three races he targeted in the final day, Trump's picks all won Tuesday night, with Republican Mike Braun defeating Democratic Sen.
Republicans retained control of the Senate on Tuesday, ousting Democratic incumbents in IN and North Dakota and handing President Donald Trump a triumph by ensuring they will remain as guardians of his conservative agenda for two more years.
In Texas, Republican Ted Cruz Cruz was projected to beat his challenger, Democratic rising star Beto O'Rourke.
Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams could become the first female African-American governor in the USA if she can beat Republican opponent Brian Kemp after a bitter campaign.
Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin in West Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin won re-election. Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown was projected to hold his seat in Ohio. Democrats also captured governorships in MI and IL.
Going into Election Day, Democrats needed to gain 23 seats in order to take back the House, which would allow them to throw a wrench in Trump's agenda on contentious issues, among them immigration.
The magnitude of the Democrats' gains in recapturing a majority in the House of Representatives is "not a miraculous achievement", he added. Democrats are relying more upon women, people of color, young people and college graduates.
Yet Trump's party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least.
The loss of power will test Trump's political hold on House Republicans, most of whom had pledged their support for him lest they face the wrath of the party's core supporters, who remain in his corner.
The 'thank u, next' meme is being embraced by every fandom
Davidson also seemed to address the song during the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live in his Weekend Update segment. She sings: 'Thought I'd end up with Sean, but it wasn't a match. "Even nearly got married, and for Pete I'm so thankful".
