Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe it lacks some information you want, but for me Guardian has more than enough information.

You can get down to the individual races, get the current and status of the election.

What I would like to know is if the election has shifted the distribution within the Democratic party. Did progressives gain seats?

Thanks. As to progressiveness, it sorta depends on how one defines it. Some would have it that we have 80+ new progressives. But a number of those come from military and intelligence backgrounds. Time will tell how progressive they are.

My question is how many of them have any understanding of MMT and of the problems with mainstream economics. Not very many, but many may be open to such approaches when they have the opportunity to actually push measures they desire, i.e. after 2020 at best. But then, as they say, 'times make the man'. Beto O'Rourke, Gavin Newsome, and several others under 60 are available.
