US House seen staying in Republican control
WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - The most unpopular United States House of Representatives in modern times was left pretty much unchanged by voters with control firmly in Republican hands, according to projections.
A contented House Speaker John Boehner told party faithful at an election night rally that he and fellow Republicans had "offered solutions and the American people want solutions and tonight they responded by renewing our House Republican majority."
While Mr Boehner said he would work with "any willing partner," he warned political opponents that he would continue to battle against Democratic moves to raise taxes on the rich.
"With this vote the American people also made clear there's no mandate for raising tax rates," he said.
