Current House Scoreboard
Bottom Line

Representative Dave Brat rose to prominence with his stunning upset of Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a 2014 primary. Cementing his campaign image as a political outsider, Brat joined the Congressional Freedom Caucus. But his suburban district is precisely the kind of district Democrats think they can win in 2018.
