The GOP managed to obtain a slim majority in the House of Representatives.

On Wednesday, the Republicans secured the 218th GOP seat in the lower chamber.

As Republicans are on the precipice of taking over the House, last night, 45th President Donald J. Trump acknowledged a California assemblyman who ran for Congress, Kevin Kiley (R-Calif.). His race has been called by Decision Desk HQ but has not been included in the 218 tally just yet.

Although House Republicans have nominated Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for House Speaker, several other leadership positions and committee assignments are still to be determined.
