With a slew of pickups in hand and potentially more to come in uncalled races, House Republicans are redoubling their efforts to reclaim the House majority they lost in 2018.
After all the races are counted, House Republicans are likely to pick up between seven and 12 House seats. That still leaves Democrats with the House majority, albeit a weaker one than their pre-election level of 232 members in the 435-person chamber.
Republican pickups this year beat oddsmakers who predicted House Democrats would expand their current majority by as much as 15 seats. And it gives them momentum heading into the 2022 midterm election cycle.
