Winning back Congress
With the death of President Franklyn D. Roosevelt (FDR) in 1945, he was to be succeeded by his Vice, Harry S. Truman. In the next presidential election, Republicans won back Congress. President Truman would lose the next election, to Dwight D. Eisenhower. Republicans would eventually gain back a super-majority within the house, and the Congress, following Congress seats would fill more with Republicans after the FDR years.
