    One Indiana Republican congressman is calling on his party to regroup to block President Joe Biden's agenda following disappointing midterm elections for the GOP.

    Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) made the remarks during an interview on "Fox News Sunday" regarding his expectation that Republicans would win a slim House majority and must work together to defeat the Left's policies over the next two years.

    "Republicans will win the majority," he said. "It will be a very slim majority, but we have an opportunity over the next two years to be the last line of defense to block the Biden agenda, and if we do that effectively and pass legislation that addresses the issues that the American people care about, bringing down inflation and gas prices, the border, the drug crisis in America, and the national security issues that keep America safe, I believe we can grow this slim majority into a much more healthier majority in the 2024 election."

    Banks noted the difficulty in passing legislation with the Senate under the Left's control, emphasizing that the GOP has a duty to reduce costs for Americans.

    "We have a responsibility to do that. Take inflation for example and energy production. Republicans said all along our top priority will be to make America energy independent again," he added. "And I think we can do that in a way, putting bills on the floor with consensus among Republicans and a Republican plan to do that I would hope Democrats would come along and vote for too."

    The congressman's words come as neither party has definitively won the House. Republicans are currently projected to win 211 of the 218 seats needed to form a majority.

    The Senate has been projected to stay in the power of Democrats after Nevada's Senate race was called in favor of incumbent Catherine Cortez Masto over GOP candidate Adama Laxalt. She holds 48.77% of the votes (487,829) over Laxalt with 48.11% (481,273) with over 95% of votes counted, according to Decision Desk HQ on Sunday.

    The re-election of Cortez Masto leaves the Senate at 50 Democrats and 49 Republicans.

    Georgia's Senate race between incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican hopeful Herschel Walker ended with neither candidate reaching 50% of the votes, as Libertarian candidate Chase Oliver received 2% support. Under state law, the top two contenders face a runoff if no candidate secures a majority of votes.

    The runoff between Warnock and Walker is scheduled for December 6. Warnock received 49.42% of votes in the midterm election, with Walker receiving 48.52% at just 35,404 fewer votes.
