Connecticut House |By David Wasserman, June 5, 2015

Democrats' dominance in Connecticut's House delegation was unchanged by the GOP wave of 2014. If there is still a "swing" seat in the state, it's the northwestern 5th CD held by sophomore Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty. In 2014, Republicans nominated a candidate who was way too conservative for the district, and held her to 53 percent. It's unlikely she will have a more difficult time in a...

California House|By David Wasserman, May 22, 2015

But if that's not disappointing enough for Golden State Republicans, they could be in an even bigger hole if the Supreme Court invalidates the work of citizen-led redistricting commissions in a ruling on a case originating in Arizona.

Most insiders have long believed Northern District Transportation Commissioner Mike Tagert and Tupelo prosecutor Trent Kelly would make...

House Overview|By David Wasserman, April 24, 2015

It's time to face it: congressional elections have moved into an era when there are more competitive primaries than general elections. Nowhere has this been on display more than in open seats, which used to be reliable generators of takeover opportunities. But in the last several cycles, the vast majority of these seats have been signed, sealed, and delivered well in advance of November.
