According to Fox 28, jubilant Republicans celebrated sweeping election gains Wednesday as President Barack Obama began adjusting to a Congress under two-house GOP control for his final years in office.
“We won in red states, we won in blue states and we won in purple states,” said Republican chairman Reince Priebus on the day after his party won control of the Senate, tightened its grip on the House and took over a handful of additional governorships.
“This was all about a direct rejection of the Obama agenda,” he declared.
A new and different era of divided government lay ahead.
Priebus spoke as Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the incoming majority leader, prepared for a midafternoon news conference to begin sketching plans for the Congress that convenes in January.
Obama, too, was fielding questions, a short while after McConnell spoke.
