Democrats edging toward California blowout in US House

Come January, Democrats will once again be in control of the U.S. House. On Wednesday, a consensus among media outlets emerged that vote tallies had sealed a victory for Democratic candidate Josh Harder in California's 10th congressional district over Republican incumbent Jeff Denham.

That means, more than a week after Election Day, Democrats have increased their House gains to a net of 33 seats - and, when all the vote is counted, they may get to 39.

Make no mistake: That is a very big wave.

President Donald Trump promptly reacted to the decision, likely to drag on the highly-polarized race, by tweeting that some - the Democrats, apparently - have been "trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida!" President Richard Nixon resigned in August 1974, leading to Democrats' pickup of 49 seats that fall.

He does, however, think there will be several investigations once Democrats take over the House and its committees. What's more, this cycle's seats are far more gerrymandered to favor Republicans than those were. Florida has also ordered a recount for its gubernatorial race, while the victor of the governor's race in Georgia remained uncertain, with a December runoff still possible.

CA 45: Democrat Katie Porter has now pulled ahead in this Orange County district after a week of trailing incumbent Republican Mimi Walters. Perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, Poliquin has sued to challenging ranked choice voting.

McCarthy's only opponent is a leader of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who was given little chance of winning by home state colleagues like Turner.

UT 4: Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams, a Democrat, leads incumbent Republican Mia Love by about 1,200 votes. All would represent holds for the GOP. Democrats now lead on the national House ballot by 7 percentage points, according to data compiled by David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report.
