Wisconsin House|By David Wasserman, April 11, 2014

Wisconsin GOP Rep. Tom Petri's retirement is just the latest departure of a pragmatic, old-school Republican this cycle. Petri was first elected in 1979 and in 2013, National Journal ranked him the 203rd most conservative Republican out of 234 in the House. He is the fifth member of the Republican Main Street Partnership to retire in 2014. Still, this is a seat Republicans should be able to...

Florida House|By David Wasserman, April 11, 2014

Freshman GOP Rep. Trey Radel may have resigned his seat in January after his arrest for purchasing cocaine from an undercover officer, but the circus didn't end there. Twelve days out from the all-important April 22 GOP primary to fill the remainder of his term, three Republicans are locked in a scorched-earth and volatile race for the safely GOP Southwest Florida seat: state Sen. Lizbeth...

North Carolina House|By David Wasserman, April 11, 2014

If Clay Aiken couldn't beat Ruben Studdard in 2003, can he beat GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers in 2014?

Pennsylvania House|By David Wasserman, April 4, 2014

In 2012, Pennsylvania's Republicans engineered perhaps the most brutally efficient redistricting map in the country: thanks to some creative cartography, the GOP captured 13 of the state's 18 districts, even though Democratic candidates for House won 83,468 more votes than Republicans statewide. Thanks to the national political environment, Republicans appear likely to hold their 13-5 House...

Michigan House|By David Wasserman, March 28, 2014

This morning, House Intelligence Chair and GOP Rep. Mike Rogers (MI-08) announced he would retire at the end of his term to take a talk radio position at Cumulus. A former FBI agent, Rogers has proven a hit with voters, winning easily even as the 8th CD has remained competitive at the presidential level. Without Rogers running, the 8th CD moves to the Lean Republican column. The last time...
