Election 2012

Handful of Congressional Races Remain Uncalled

Five still remain very close


As of Monday afternoon, the Associated Press had called 196 seats for Democrats, and had them leading in all five remaining uncalled contests. The AP had called 234 seats for Republicans.

Should those results stand, it would mark a small shift in the House. Democrats went into the election with 193 seats and Republicans with 242.

If Democrats gain eight seats, the party would need to net 17 seats in the 2014 election to attain the majority.
