In the midterm congressional elections on November 5, 2002, “thanks to the war on terror and [President] Bush’s high approval ratings, the Republicans won a narrow majority in the Senate, thereby seizing control from the Democrats. …In the House, the Republicans picked up eight seats and increased their majority over the Democrats to twenty-five.”
