MIDTERMS: GOP Closes In On House Majority, Biden Address Expected Today

US

The GOP continues to close in on the 218 House seats required for majority control of the House of Representatives.

  • As of a few moments ago, Republicans control 210 seats with 32 races to be called.
  • Democrats have very few pathways left for retaining control of the House.
    • 7 tossup races, 10 lean-Republican races, and 17 lean-Democrat races are left to be called meaning Democrats will need to win all the tossups and Democrat-leaning races to have a chance at retaining the chamber - highly unlikely as tossup races in New York and Oregon are currently tilting Republican.
  • White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has confirmed to the White House press pack that she expects President Biden to address the election results at some point today.
