In order to take the majority in the house, Republicans will need to capture 21 seats this cycle and hold onto the 197 seats they have now. In this thread I hope to catalog those seats held by democrats that are in jeopardy and show glimmers of hope that republicans will indeed attain a majority.
The first seat is that of Jeff Van Drew, a blue dog democrat from New Jersey’s second congressional district. He voted nay on impeachment and has vowed to switch party affiliation.
The second is held by Joe Cunningham, (D) South Carolina’s first congressional district. A Democrat hasn’t held this seat since Jimmy Carter was president. He won narrowly in 2018 but is up for re-election 2020. He is expected to be challenged by Nancy Mace.
Given what I’ve seen in the gop you have 6 seats on the edge of flipping. I havent seen what the dems have for people on the edge.
If numbers stay the same as 2018 dems will retain the house and maybe pick up a few senate seats. Colorado and maine come to mind.
Ron Kind WI is at the bottom of that list yes his district went for Trump, but Kind is very popular. He’s just a decent guy who is very active with constituent services, helping people with their problems, answering questions, helping them navigate government issues. Like congresspeople used to do.
