10:30 House Update: GOP +61 Before West Coast Reports

Using the same criterion from my last post, the GOP now leads in 63 Democratic-held seats and is behind in only two of their own, Delaware (Castle’s open seat) and the New Orleans seat of Joseph Cao.

In the states left to come in, there are three seats in Arizona, one each in Nevada, Oregon, and Idaho, two in Washington, and one in California thought to be seriously contested.  There are also seats where the GOP can try an upset, like Jim Costa’s in CA-20.

Looking like pickups in the 60–70 range.
