The midterm elections on Tuesday were certainly a point of interest. Both Republicans and Democrats experienced victories and losses as the balance of congressional power shifted. I asked NASH students about their thoughts on the results of the election. Here are their responses.

“I’m happy the Democrats took the House, and I hope they serve as a check on Trump. Statewise, I wish Emily Skopov would’ve won but I’m happy Lindsey Williams was able to pull off a win.” – Jaime Martinez, junior

“Both parties won per se, because the Democrats took the house, but I feel like historically, it was a good night for Republicans.” -Tyler Boyles, junior 

“I think it was pretty good for Democrats.  Sure they didn’t take the senate, but the end result of the Dems winning the house by more than 10 seats is pretty good. Congress before last night’s election was primarily Republican, and now hopefully the new balance of power will lead to bigger change.” -Henrique Marchi, senior

“I was disappointed that Rothfus lost to Lamb.  Rothfus is actually a very nice guy.” -Dawson White, senior

“Mike! Mike! Mike!” -Nate Gierczynski, junior

“I hope that the Democratic Party won’t just use their new power in the House to block everything that the Trump administration tries to pass, but instead I hope that they will make new strides that will further our advancements in the world.” -Sai Velaga, junior 

“How did Massachusetts elect Elizabeth Warren AGAIN? But other than that, everything was pretty much what I predicted was going to happen, since we had to fill out a sheet with election predictions in APUSH.” -Michael Taffe, junior

“I’m glad Mike Turzai won!”- Andrew Baierl, junior

“The increase in voter turnout for the midterms was encouraging, and I think people are realizing more and more how much their vote counts. This is democracy at work.” -Ainsley Ferron, junior

“I was surprised the Democrats took over the House.” -Kara McLaughlin, senior

“This is an outrage!” -Nathan Kelly, senior
