Democrats Gain Edge in More House Races
CQ Politics today “is changing the race ratings in 14 congressional districts in 10 states to reflect changing political circumstances that mean brighter prospects for the Democrats, who are expected to augment their 236 to 199 majority in the U.S. House in the November elections.”
“Twelve of the 14 race rating changes favor the Democrats, compared to two that favor Republicans, who are trying to limit their losses this year after suffering a net loss of 30 House seats in the 2006 election.”
Bonus Quote of the Day
