(Bloomberg) -- Democrats clinched the U.S. House majority, halting Republicans’ eight-year reign as voters delivered a rebuke to President Donald Trump, according to projections from NBC and FOX. Republicans have kept control of the Senate.

Democrats will likely surpass the net gain of 23 seats they needed to win House control. Democrats plan to launch a string of investigations into Trump ahead of the 2020 presidential election while attempting to strike a deal on increased infrastructure spending.

The victory capitalized on Trump’s persistently low approval rating, which never reached 50 percent in most polls despite a booming economy.
