FRONT PAGE CONTRIBUTOR
DOOM from the Hill.
I just got sent something that was pretty garbled, but the gist of it is: the Hill’s reporting on at least 10 House races. Of them, 2 have the Democrat ahead and the others have the Republican ahead. Or possibly it’s 22 races, and the GOP is ahead in 19, Democrat ahead in 2, 1 tie: as I said, what I got sent was a link to something that’s pretty garbled.
Names in parentheses are the Republican candidates (the Democratic ones can fend for themselves).
There’s a lot of embarrassing results there for the Democrats, of course – but probably the two most embarrassing are HI-01 and AR-01. Charles Djou was scheduled to be a pushover and placeholder (guess nobody told him); and Rick Crawford is leading his race by 12 points, in a district that hasn’t had a Republican representing it in a century. Guess the prognosticators are going to have to do some more revising…
