House-Race Roundup


So far, we have big GOP leads in most marginal districts with at least 15 percent of the vote in:

IN-2: Walorski up by 15.5.

IN-8: Buchson up by 14.

IN-9: Young up by 14.

VA-5: Hurt up by 10.

VA-9: Griffith up by 8.

The only marginal district the GOP is behind in is KY-6, where Chandler leads Barr by 5.5 percent with 60 percent in.

If the GOP wins five of these six, it will be on track for a 60-to-75-seat-pickup night.
