Trump briefly sought to strike a statesmanlike tone in his first public remarks after the loss, praising House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for her hard work and envisioning "a handsome, bipartisan type of situation" on infrastructure investments and healthcare. Voters who considered it especially important broke for their Democratic House candidate, 56 percent to 43 percent.
