Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin (MD) joined CBS’s “Face the Nation” to discuss the midterm elections with host Margaret Brennan.
The Democrats stole the senate with ballot harvesting in Pennsylvania and post-Election Day ballot counting in Arizona and Nevada.
The race for control of the US House is not over.
By Sunday morning CNN showed the Democrats gained another seat on Saturday while the GOP stayed at 211.
There is a slim chance the Republicans will take the House.
Rep. Raskin discussed Kevin McCarthy, the Freedom Caucus and the Republican leadership moving forward.
Raskin said Republicans in the Freedom Caucus are looking for new leadership and could vote for Trump to be House Speaker.
“One potential candidate whose name has been floated is Donald Trump himself because the Speaker of the House does not have to be a member of the House,” Raskin said.
Rep. Raskin is concerned Trump could become Speaker of the House.
