The non-partisan Cook Political Report says Democrats have over-performed projections in nine House special elections and could be on track to pick up more than enough seats to take back the majority in November. They only need 24 seats and at this rate are forecasted to get back three-times that number. Twenty-five Republican incumbents are retiring from public office, compared to only ten Democrats, big mouths with no substance like Darrell Issa and Trey Gowdy, plus the worst House Speaker ever, Paul Ryan. Now if we could only get rid of Mitch Mitchell.
And speaking of the Senate, three of the most powerful Senators are retiring, Bob Corker from Tennessee, Jeff Flake from Arizona and Orrin Hatch from Utah. There are no Democratic Senators leaving the Senate. Dems are expected to capture a Senate seat here in Arizona with Kyrsten Sinema, currently a representative, in perhaps one of the reddest states in the country. This state will probably be last but as it progresses through purple to bright blue, you'll know the left has finally arrived. The Dems are three seats shy of a majority in the Senate, but many believe it will happen.
