Democrats have an uphill battle for the House

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for vote, but 40 seats – mostly on the Republican side – are in play to determine the balance of power. Democrats would need to pick up at least 30 additional seats to gain a majority but are expected to fall short of that. See the Senate race here.
