President Trump is holding a post-election news conference Wednesday, which he announced with a tweet: "I will be doing a news conference at The White House - 11:30 A.M. Will be discussing our success in the Midterms!"
Though the Democrats won back control of the House, Republicans increased their margins in the Senate. CBS News' Major Garrett reported that the president said he was ecstatic as he watched the election results come in. He had focused in the closing days of the campaign on helping Republicans maintain their majority in the Senate, and that effort appears to have paid off. Wednesday morning, he was tweeting about the GOP's "Big Victory."
