Schumer, D-N.Y., watch election returns as Democratic victories accumulate in elections across the U.S. for House and Senate races. Voters across the country dispatched Republican lawmakers Tuesday in favor of Democrats, ending four years of total GOP control in Congress and giving voice to a party that has challenged President BushÕs leadership of the war in Iraq. California Rep. Nancy Pelosi will become the highest-ranking woman ever in American government if, as expected, she is elected Speaker of the House in January.
