GOP Plus-7 in House, Needs to Seat 8 More for Majority

(Newsmax/"Prime News")

By    |   Friday, 11 November 2022 02:33 PM EST

While the Republican red wave never materialized, Republicans thus far have recorded a net gain of seven seats in the House and need just eight more officially called races to come in for the GOP to take the majority in the next Congress.

Newsmax projects Republicans with 210 seats compared to 195 for Democrats, and the first party to hit 218 has the majority and the all-important committee gavels.

There remain 30 House races too close to call, according to Newsmax projections.

Republicans need to go at least 8-22 in those remaining races, while Democrats need to go 23-7.

Among the races still too close to call:

  • Colorado District 3 – Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., leading Democrat Adam Frisch by 1,122 votes.
  • California District 27 – Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Calif., leads by nearly 13 percentage points.
  • California District 13 – Republican John Duarte leads by 267 votes.
  • California District 3 – Republican Kevin Kiley leads by more than 6 points.
  • California District 22 – Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., leads by more than 8 points.
  • Oregon District 5 – Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer leads by little more than 2.3 percentage points.
  • Alaska's lone House seat – Democrat Mary Peltola leads Republicans Sarah Palin and Nick Begich in the ranked-choice voting format, which would need Begich or Palin voters to have the other ranked No. 2 on their ballot by a vast majority, according to reports.
  • New York District 19: Republican Marcus Molinaro leads by more than 2 percentage points.
  • New York District 22: Republican Brandon Williams leads by 3,925 votes.
  • New York District 4: Republican Anthony D'Esposito leads by nearly 4 points.

The Senate still remains in the balance, and could even be won before Georgia's Dec. 6 runoff election between Republican Herschel Walker and Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga.

With Republicans holding 49 Senate seats and Democrats holding 48, the races for Senate in Arizona and Nevada keep the majority in the balance. Democrats only need to get to 50 because of Vice President Kamala Harris' tiebreaking vote.

  • Arizona – Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., leads Republican Blake Masters by nearly 6 percentage points, but ballots still to be counted.
  • Nevada – Republican Adam Laxalt leads incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto, D-Nev., by less than 1 percentage point.
