You throw one down and vote ’em out, 98 Democrat seats on the wall!
With two weeks remaining until Election Day, the political map has expanded to put Democrats on the run across the country – with 99 Democratic-held House seats now in play, according to a POLITICO analysis, and Republicans well in reach of retaking the House.
It’s a dramatic departure from the outlook one year ago – and a broader landscape than even just prior to the summer congressional recess. As recently as early September, many Republicans were hesitant to talk about winning a majority for fear of overreaching.
Today, however, the non-partisan Cook Political Report predicts a GOP net gain of at least 40 House seats, with 90 Democratic seats in total rated as competitive or likely Republican.
Signs, Signs, everywhere there’s signs
Chasing down the liberals, busting up their minds
Mountains ‘o debt, Tea Party rants – How’d they miss the signs?
Goodbye Speaker Pelosi, and good riddance.
