We're bringing you more details on Tuesday's U.S. midterm elections. Not all of the outcomes are known yet. Some of the races for House seats, Senate seats and state governorships are still too close to call. But looking at where things stand for the next U.S. Congress, the big picture results for Democrats and Republicans are a mixed bag and they're pretty much in line with what analysts predicted.

Democrats did take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, as many political experts forecasted they would. 218 seats are needed to have control of that chamber and as of last night, Democrats had secured 223 seats, Republicans had secured 199 seats and the outcomes of 13 races weren't known yet. Republicans did maintain control of the Senate as many political experts forecasted they would. They needed to secure at least 50 seats to keep control of the 100 member chamber. Republican Vice-President Mike Pence could be the tiebreaking vote if necessary and as of last night, Republicans had secured 51 seats. Democrats secured 46 seats. The outcomes of three races weren't known yet.

So Congress is split. Neither Democrats nor Republicans had a sweeping victory on Tuesday and while Republican President Donald Trump and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi are at opposite sides of a strongly divided political aisle, they both signaled on Wednesday that there were opportunities for their two parties to work together.

PRESIDENT Donald Trump: I really believe that we have a chance to get along very well with the Democrats and if that's the case, we could do a tremendous amount of legislation and get it approved. I really believe there's going to be much less gridlock.

NANCY PELOSI, HOUSE MINORITY LEADER: We'll have accountability and we will strive for bipartisanship with fairness on all sides. We have a responsibility to find our common ground where we can, stand our ground where we can't. But we must try.

CARL AZUZ: The next Congress which Americans voted for this week is the 116th United States Congress and it will be seated in January 3rd, 2019.

下面为大家报道周二举行的美国中期选举的更多详细信息。目前,并不是所有结果都已经确定。一些众议院席位、参议院席位以及州长人选的竞争依然难分胜负。我们先来看一下下届美国国会的情况,民主党和共和党的整体结果好坏参半,基本与分析人士的预期相符。

正如许多政治专家预测的那样,民主党夺得了美国众议院的控制权。掌控众议院需要218个席位,截至昨晚,民主党确保了223个席位,共和党确保了199个席位,还有13个席位的竞争结果没有确定。共和党维持了对参议院的控制权,这也符合大多数政治专家的预期。共和党需要至少确保50个席位才能继续控制共有100个席位的参议院。如果有必要,共和籍副总统迈克·彭斯会投出打破平局的一票,而截至昨晚,共和党确保了51个席位。民主党确保了46个席位。剩余3个席位的竞争结果还未确定。

这一结果表明国会进入分裂时代。民主党和共和党都没能在周二的中期选举中大获全胜,虽然共和党总统唐纳德·特朗普和众议院民主党领袖南希·佩洛西在分歧严重的政府中处于对立面,但是二人在周三均表示,两党有机会进行合作。

唐纳德·特朗普总统:我确实相信我们有机会和民主党人和睦相处,如果这能实现,那我们可以联手推动大量立法获得通过。我坚信僵局会大大减少。

众议院少数党领袖南希·佩洛西:我们有责任也将努力在保证各方公平的情况下实现两党合作。我们相信,我们有责任尽可能地寻求共同点,在我们不能达成一致的地方,我们必须坚持自己的立场。但我们必须尝试。

卡尔·阿祖兹:美国选民投票选出的下届国会是美国第116届国会,将于2019年1月3日就职。
