Red and Blue parties fight for control of U.S. House

Local Elections

House District 2 is one of more than 20 seats where an incumbent is not running.

Both parties are fighting for the seat in the race for control of the U.S. House Tuesday.

As it stands, Republicans hold 235 Congressional seats while Democrats hold 193.

The latest poll predictions from CBS show around 30 seats are toss-ups.

A majority of those are currently held by a Republican but there is some good news for Democratic candidates.

The latest CBS News Battleground Tracker Poll shows Democrats are expected to win 225 House seats, which would give them control of the House.

“So it’s heavily dependent for Democrats to turn out new voters that don’t vote typically, in midterms. But Republicans think they also have to counter that and get their base out,” said Anthony Salvanto, CBS News Elections & Survey Director.

According to the Tracker Poll, Republicans are looking more likely to hold on to or even expand their lead in the Senate.
