Trump Wins, Big League

Nearing 3:00 a.m. EST, Senator Clinton called Donald Trump to concede the election as the key states of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were called. President-elect Trump currently sits at 289 electoral votes while Clinton has a surprisingly low 218, with Minnesota, Michigan, and New Hampshire still waiting to be called. Former Secretary Clinton has a slight lead in the popular vote, as of Wednesday morning. Republicans kept control of both houses of Congress, with Republicans taking 51 seats in the Senate and Democrats at 47 (2 seats still up for grabs); the House awarded 238 seats to Republicans and 193 to Democrats, with 4 seats still undecided. Republican control of both the executive and legislative branches is expected to heavily impact areas such as Obamacare and the Supreme Court nomination(s).
