Nationwide, there are massive sighs of relief that the midterms are over and election ads, flyers and robocalls will stop, at least in the short term. After a deluge of money put into races across the country — leading to various marketing, advertisements and get-out-the-vote programs — we can return to our normal lives.

For President Donald Trump, he can take pride that his incredibly busy campaign rally schedule made a difference. The Republicans maintained control of the Senate and even picked up two seats. 

This is a really big deal. Normally, the party of the president looses Senate seats in a midterm election.Obama lost six Senate seats in his first midterm. In a nationally spotlighted race, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz maintained his seat, defeating Beto O'Rourke in Texas. In Florida, Republican Gov. Rick Scott won the Senate seat over Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

As for governors races, there are a few very important, telling ones. In Florida, another nationally highlighted race, Republican Ron DeSantis beat Democrat Andrew Gillum. DeSantis was backed by Trump and tied himself closely to the administration. Gillum ran a very progressive identity-based campaign. In Georgia, Republican Brian Kemp is poised to win over Democrat Stacey Abrams. The race is still too close to call, but in a worst-case scenario for Kemp, the election would move into a runoff if he drops below 50 percent. Abrams also ran a very progressive identity-based campaign. In Ohio, where Republican Gov. John Kasich was term-limited, Republican Mike DeWine beat Democrat Richard Cordray.
