Investors had an eye on the midterm races from Wall Street. There are still many races that have not been called and control of Congress remains uncertain.
In the days leading up to the midterm election, the stock market had been rising in anticipation of a Red Wave, which would have kept President Biden from pushing his legislative agenda forward.
The first two years of the Biden administration featured a number of spending packages. The American Rescue Plan is anticipated to spend $1.9 trillion, other omnibus proposals include the $370 billion Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the $80 billion CHIPS and Science Act, and $55 billion in aid for Ukraine. Executive orders related to health care will lead to $175 billion in new deficits, while an increase in food stamp spending will add $185 billion.

Republicans lost some high-profile races Tuesday, including Dr. Mehmet Oz's loss to John Fetterman in the Pennsylvania Senate race. There will be a runoff in Georgia to settle the battle between Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker.
Two Republicans took home gubernatorial wins against Beto O'Rourke and Stacey Abrams. They were defeated by Greg Abbott in Texas and Brian Kemp in Georgia. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had an impressive showing defeating Democratic challenger Charlie Crist in a landslide victory.
Most projections predict the Republican Party to narrowly take control of the House with the Senate still to be determined.
