"It's nearly never happened", Trump said in response to interviewing journalist Chris Wallace's statement that Democrats gained notable strength this time in some of the Midwestern states that were key to Trump's 2016 success. He was able to claim victory 11 days after the election in what had been the last undecided House contest in California. The party holds a supermajority in both chambers of the Legislature and has a 3.7-million advantage in voter registration. After court battles and recounts, incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson conceded the race to Florida Governor Rick Scott, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum conceded to former Representative Ron DeSantis to replace the outgoing Scott as governor.
