    The 12th District race was for an interim position as Representative. The same two candidates will face off again in 90 days in the mid-term elections.

    A win is a win, especially for the party in power in a special election. Those are really hard to win, historically, and Trump did it. No warning sign except to democrats. This is their only opportunity, and they're blowing it. Close doesn't cut it, you have to win, and it might be their last chance.

    When you illegally steal an election you don't win in a democracy. You do in a communist or fascist country not under the rule of law.

    True, but the good news is they failed and now the deep state is being exposed. Yes I agree, they tried to throw the election for Hillary. We now have numerous texts and emails to back this up. And yes, we know the dems are trying to meddle in elections by encouraging illegal aliens to vote. But, again, Trump is fighting this trying to improve voting laws and voter ID which I'm sure you're in favor of. So cheer up.

    What are the record of the DEMS so far in elections this year, like 1 win, 9 losses, and the one win was when Roy Moore got blown up by fake media a week before election?
    The MAIN issue is always going to be the economy, and if it is still surging like now, the only way Dems get back anything is if the republicans run stupid, and refuse to get behind trump!

    How many of those "important seats" have the Republicans flipped from blue to red?

    who knows? The House elections have gone six of seven to the GOP, the dead duck D in Alabama won, though.

    The Ds need +23 to win the House, don't think you can read too much into those state elections, they were concentrated in a few states and the Democrats spent a lot (too much) money they don't have on them. What is the generic (also a questionable metric) ballot say right now?

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - 2018 Generic Congressional Vote

    D+5 it seems . . . if true, that won't cut it, it needs to be +11 to take over. Meh, the party of the sitting president usually takes losses in the midterms, but GWB didn't in 2002, Carter didn't in 1978, and JFK didn't in 1962. Right now, I'd guess plus or minus ten.

    Right now, my guess is the Democrats pick up 30 House seats and the Republicans pick up 2 Senate seats.

    Republicans - + 12 seats in congress, + 2 in senate.

    October - the RNC will conduct a tsunami campaign emptying their coffer, President Trump will sleep 2 hours a night and do a 22/7 cross country crusade.
