    first_imgU.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, speaks during a news conference at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.Alyssa Schukar | Bloomberg | Getty Images – Advertisement – In races called by NBC, Republicans have flipped a net three seats. Democrats have won 199 seats, the GOP has carried 188 and 48 remain uncalled. – Advertisement – Democrats will keep their U.S. House majority in the next Congress, according to NBC News.But after a series of rough early returns from the 2020 election, the party will likely have fewer seats in January than it does now.NBC estimates Democrats will hold 226 House seats, while Republicans will have 209. The figures could change, as NBC said the parties may ultimately end up with as many as eight seats more or less than those projections. (Eight fewer seats for Democrats would put them at 218, the minimum they need for a majority).- Advertisement – Republicans have so far cut into the Democratic majority mostly by gaining back ground they lost in the 2018 midterms, when Democrats flipped House control. The GOP will defeat at least five House Democrats, including four first-term representatives.Republican Nancy Mace will beat freshman Democratic Rep. Joe Cunningham in South Carolina’s 1st District.GOP candidate Stephanie Bice will defeat first-term Democratic Rep. Kendra Horn in Oklahoma’s 5th District.Republican Michelle Fischbach will prevail over longtime Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson in Minnesota’s 7th District. GOP candidate Yvette Herrell will win her rematch against first-term Democratic Rep. Xochitl Torres Small in New Mexico’s 2nd District. Republican Ashley Hinson will defeat first-term Democratic Rep. Abby Finkenauer in Iowa’s 1st District. Democrats have also gained two seats in races called by NBC News. Deborah Ross and Kathy Manning will win races for North Carolina’s 2nd and 6th Districts, respectively. Both GOP-held seats became more friendly to Democrats after redistricting in the state. – Advertisement – Entering Election Day, forecasters projected Democrats would gain House seats and challenge for the Senate majority. Now, Democrats may only end up with a narrow majority in the House as states count final results to determine whether Republicans hold their advantage in the Senate. In a letter to House Democrats on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi projected confidence in Democratic nominee Joe Biden winning the presidential election. Remaining tallies in states including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona will determine whether he or President Donald Trump occupy the White House for the next four years. She said that the Democratic House and White House would “have the opportunity to deliver extraordinary progress” on issues including health care, infrastructure and clean government. She acknowledged a “challenging election” and said Democratic candidates “made us proud.” Out of the nine Democratic-held districts the nonpartisan Cook Political report listed as toss-up races, NBC projects Republicans will win at least four. Five are unresolved. Cook considered 17 Republican seats and one independent-held district as toss-ups. The GOP has won all nine of those races that NBC has called so far. House Democrats aimed to expand their reach in the 2020 election, targeting a range of Republican seats in states including Texas, North Carolina and Florida. After an often discussed push by Democrats to win GOP-held seats in Texas, the party has not flipped any of the districts it targeted (though NBC has not projected results in at least two of them). The party also did not gain any seats in Florida, and two South Florida House Democrats currently trail in races not yet called by NBC. Even so, NBC projects Democrats will hold a range of key districts they won in 2018. Reps. Lizzie Fletcher and Colin Allred are expected to keep their seats in Texas. Rep. Lucy McBath will win reelection in Georgia, as will Reps. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, Josh Harder of California and Kim Schrier of Washington. Subscribe to CNBC on YouTube.last_img read more

  • Allardyce Nabbed in Undercover Sting, Steps Down as England Manager

    first_img“You can still get around it. I mean, obviously, the big money’s here,” Allardyce fondly called ‘Big Sam’ said on the video, while also calling the regulations “ridiculous.”A statement from the FA read: “The FA can confirm that Sam Allardyce has left his position as England manager. Allardyce’s conduct, as reported today (yesterday), was inappropriate of the England manager.“He accepts he made a significant error of judgment and has apologised. However, due to the serious nature of his actions, The FA and Allardyce have mutually agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect.“This is not a decision that was taken lightly but The FA’s priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football. The manager of the England men’s senior team is a position which must demonstrate strong leadership and show respect for the integrity of the game at all times.”Martin Glenn, England FA boss said, “‘A very difficult 24 hours. In the light of the media allegations that we’ve seen, we’ve concluded and Sam’s agreed that his behaviour’s been inappropriate and frankly not what is expected of an England manager, discussing a range of issues from potential contraventions of FA rules through to personal comments that frankly just don’t work when you’re the manager of England.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Sam Allardyce has left his position as England manager by mutual consent after just one game in charge of the national team.Allardyce was filmed advising undercover journalists on how to circumvent rules against third-party ownership, according to UK’s Daily Telegraph.Video accompanying the report shows Allardyce meeting twice with journalists posing as representatives of a Far East agency who were interested in bypassing rules from the Football Association and FIFA.last_img read more

Read Skyscanner’s advice below to find out.When is the strike?The public sector strikes are due to take place on Wednesday 30 November, 2011. This will affect border control at airports from the evening of Tuesday 29 November until 23:59 on Wednesday 30 November. Starting times will vary as each airport has different shift patterns.What are the strikes about?This is a UK-wide public sector strike over pensions that will affect immigration officers in airports (as well as other public sector workers such as teachers).How will airports and flights be affected?It’s expected that UK Border Agent staff levels will be about 30-50% of the maximum. This will cause significant disruption and delays at airports across the country. Heathrow and Gatwich are expected to be worst affected, but it’s likely that all airports may face some delays and cancellations. However, according to the BBC, arrivals and take offs at these airports are largely unaffected.What should I do if I’m flying FROM the UK on strike day (30th November 2011)?The current advice is that disruption to outbound passengers will be minimal and people should stick to their plans. However, as the situation is uncertain, travellers should keep in touch with their airline – most have been adding updates to their websites and Twitter channels.What should I do if I’m flying TO the UK on strike day?Postpone your trip if at all possible.

Again – contact your airline and take their advice.Can I switch my flights for free?Different airlines have different policies on switching flights, so check with the airline you are flying with. For example, Virgin Atlantic say they will allow passengers booked on UK inbound flights to rebook travel up to four days earlier or later. BA say customers can switch flights free of charge. Cathay Pacific has urged passengers to postpone and rebook flights.Can I claim on my travel insurance for costs incurred due to the strike?Some insurers will cover policyholders for delays or cancellations that last for longer than 24 hours.
