House Overview|By David Wasserman, July 18, 2014

For all of House Democrats' intractable problems this cycle, it must be said that they have done a decent job limiting retirements in marginal seats. There are just 16 open Democratic seats compared to 27 open Republican seats, which flies in the face of the theory that Democrats, glum about their prospects of taking back the House, are heading for the exits en masse.

Democrats desperately need a game-changer to help them gain any House seats whatsoever this fall, and they appeared to get a jolt of good news on Thursday when Florida Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis ruled two of the Sunshine State's 27 congressional districts unconstitutional.

West Virginia House|By David Wasserman, June 13, 2014

What's the biggest hotbed of House race intrigue so far this year? Oddly enough, it might be West Virginia. The state may be trending red rapidly, but Republicans' selection of former Maryland GOP Chair Alex Mooney in the May primary for the open 2nd CD has given former West Virginia Democratic Chair Nick Casey hope he can make the race more about carpetbagging than President Obama.To the...
