GOP retains control of the House

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) Republicans retained their House majority on Tuesday, expanding their numbers to near historic highs and giving the GOP control of both chambers of Congress.

The GOP knocked out Democratic incumbents in Georgia, West Virginia, Illinois, New York and Florida as President Barack Obama proved too much of a drag on his party in midterm elections. Republicans also claimed two open seats in New York and North Carolina.

Control of the House and Senate means an all-GOP Congress for Obama's last two years in office.
