I love the uncertainty, the late polls, the frantic final activity. It’s the best time of the year.
It’s also time to make predictions. I’m not sure why, but it is.
SENATE: Republicans win the majority. Not including Louisiana, which won’t be decided on Tuesday and thus goes into a December runoff, the GOP will have a net gain of 7 seats. That leaves them with 52 and with the possibility of one more in the Pelican State on 12/6.
HOUSE: Republicans gain 12. That adds to their majority, which is currently 234-201 (if you factor in the three vacancies). That would bring them to 246 members.
GOVERNOR: Both major parties lose 4, leaving no net change among governors. Currently, Republicans have a 29-21 advantage.
