This morning, I spoke with Jackie Ibanez about what to look for in the midterms (see video). Eight Republican held seats in the House are currently projected to flip. That means Democrats need to win 15 out of 40 competitive races to gain majority control. Top issues will be economy, health care, and immigration. But, to get a sense of how tough the terrain is, 37 of the 40 competitive races are currently held by Republicans. The GOP is on defense and simply hoping to minimize their losses.
