In total, 68 GOP-held seats are now rated competitive
Despite forecasts of a blue tsunami, it’s still not guaranteed that Democrats will win back the House majority. But the playing field of competitive House races is expanding and shifting to almost exclusively Republican territory.
- 68 Republican seats are rated as vulnerable.
- 10 Democratic seats are rated as vulnerable.
And there are at least a couple dozen more GOP-held seats that could develop into competitive races in the months ahead.
That discrepancy in the playing field is reminiscent of previous “wave” elections.
