https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/17/politics ... index.html

With just a handful of races still uncalled at this point, Republicans have gained nine seats -- having won 12 Democratic-held districts and lost just three of their own. And those numbers don't even tell the full story, given that two of the three seats Republicans lost were the direct result of a redrawing of North Carolina's congressional districts that reworked the map in ways that were decidedly unfavorable to the GOP. Subtract those two seats, which neither party spent any money in or seriously contested, and you are down to a single competitive seat that went from red to blue: The suburban Atlanta 7th District.


So much for the hope that we'd get better news in the House as we learned more about those closely contested races.

I love how many still insist that GOPers value anything beyond keeping their own power and making libs cry.

Looks like the Nays won. Woo hoo.

Do you think Trump even knows this vote is going on?

Rudy better make sure that check clears, this might the one time Trump can rightfully stiff someone for doing a horsefeathers job.

Well the Republican party is against democracy as long as it goes against them.
