Republicans are projected to hold onto their majority in the House, according to CNN, keeping the gavel in the hands of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
Democrats would have needed a net gain of 25 seats to recapture the House, and early results in races across the country show them falling well short of that mark.
The result is a resounding victory for House Republicans, who rode into power in the Tea Party-fueled wave election of 2010, and a bitter defeat for Democrats who had hoped to make Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) Speaker of the House once more.
