The 1990 elections to Congress were bad for the Liberal Democrats. With the president in the tail end of his final term, and voters somewhat uncomfortable with the Vice-President, they saw losses in both chambers. The Mackinaw problem, and the disagreement of voters with the Liberal Democratic leadership - along with the President and Vice-President - on what to do about it, did not help.

Such an environment saw small losses in the Senate, leading to the Conservatives gaining two seats, and the Liberal Democrats narrowly avoiding losing control of that chamber, relying on aid from Senators Symes and Wells on some issues, and the vote from the Vice President on others in order to stay in control following the election. The Majority Leader, Senator Kerin of Alger, lost his seat as well, being replaced by Robert Kulisheck.

Losses in the House were deeper, but the Liberal Democrats saw their majority remain in place here as well, though not quite by so narrow a margin as the Senate.
