Roll Call: Democrats Chances For A House Majority “All But Evaporated”
If Roll Call is to be believed, it looks like Nancy Pelosi is in for another two years as House Minority Leader. Democrats chances to take back the House of Representatives was always a real long shot, just ask Hillary Clinton. Yet with just four days until Election Day, the strong performance of many Republican makes it even more so.
According to Roll Call’s analysis five Republican-held, critical to Democrat’s majority chances, have now seen their election chances significantly upgraded:
- Michigan’s 7th District (Tim Walberg, R) from Leans Republican to Republican Favored.
- New York’s 1st District (Lee Zeldin, R) from Tilts Republican to Leans Republican
- New York’s 24th District (John Katko, R) from Leans Republican to Republican Favored
- Virginia’s 5th District (Open; Robert Hurt, R) from Leans Republican to Republican Favored
- Wisconsin’s 8th District (Open; Reid Ribble, R) from Leans Republican to Republican Favored
Democrats have already spent six years in the minority under Pelosi. If they come up short yet again, how much longer will Democrats tolerate an extreme liberal like Pelosi as the head of their caucus?
