"Clashes On Climate Expected After Dems Take House"

"The U.S. Capitol could boil with pitched political battles over the environment for the next two years after Democrats captured control of the House in yesterday's midterm elections but missed seizing the Senate.

Republicans held on to their Senate majority in part by knocking off coal-country Democrats in states such as Indiana and North Dakota, both of which President Trump carried by large margins in 2016.

Democrats' path to victory in the House often ran through suburban districts that Hillary Clinton won two years ago. Among them is Democrat Sean Casten, who toppled six-term Republican Rep. Peter Roskam on the outskirts of Chicagoland."
