Top Republicans including Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz admitted that the predicted 'red wave' had not materialized as Democrats were victorious in crucial House races and won a Senate seats in Nevada.
'Definitely not a Republican wave, that's for darn sure,' GOP Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told NBC News just hours after the GOP started the night strong with Ron DeSantis' landslide victory in the Florida Governor race.
And Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said: 'It hasn't been as big of a wave as I'd hoped it would be. We've had some close races go the other way so far.'
Republicans were still predicted to take the majority in the House, but the Senate is set to go down to the wire.
