House Overview|By David Wasserman, August 28, 2015

House Republicans are hurtling towards the fall with lots of concerns: how to reconcile a deadline to fund the government with conservatives' demands to defund Planned Parenthood, navigating highway funding, and the need to raise the debt limit. However, losing lots of seats or the majority next year isn't one of them.

House Overview|By David Wasserman, August 28, 2015

Kirkpatrick's decision to run for Senate makes this northern Arizona seat one of Republicans' best pickup opportunities. But Democrats are optimistic that their latest entry, former state Sen.
