HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Currently there are 233 Republicans, 199 Democrats, and 3 vacancies. As of 8:00 am Wednesday there are 242 Republican, 174 Democrat, and 19 undecided. There are many close races but it appears Republicans will make a gain of of five to ten seats.
There are currently 29 Republicans, 21 Democrats, and 0 Independents. With four seats still undecided, as of Wednesday at 8:00 am Republicans have gained net two seats.
Projection: In spite of close races and over $100 million in RGA donations it seems that Christie’s efforts will not make much if any of an overall Republican gain.
