  • The 1974 United States midterm elections were held on November 5, and elected the members of the 94th United States Congress. The elections occurred in the first few months of Gerald Ford's term in office in wake of the Watergate scandal, which culminated in Richard M. Nixon's resignation from the presidency and Ford's subsequent pardon of Nixon. In addition, an energy crisis hit the country at this time, resulting in soaring inflation. These circumstances, along with the six-year itch phenomenon, hurt the Republicans, and they lost seats in both houses of Congress. Many of the newly elected Democrats were liberal northerners (known as Watergate Babies), and the influx of liberals moved power away from the conservative southern Democrats who held most committee chairs in both houses.
