Democrats were able to hold on to the Senate and keep control of a number of key House seats after the “red wave” failed to materialize on Election Day, but Republicans last week narrowly crossed the 218-seat threshold to take the House.

Now, more than two weeks after the midterms, two House races in California and Colorado are officially still up in the air — though the Democrat has conceded in Colorado. If the current GOP leads hold, Republicans will secure 222 House seats, while Democrats would hold 213.

North Carolina's Democratic governor says a Trump presidency 'is not something I want to live again,' calls on states to help Biden win in 2024

  North Carolina's Democratic governor says a Trump presidency 'is not something I want to live again,' calls on states to help Biden win in 2024 North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper blasted Trump for vacillating between "indifference and obstruction" during the pandemic.So far, Americans have dealt devastating blows to his brand by rejecting key candidates in closely-contested races. Rather than a so-called "red wave," results were still unclear on Wednesday. Republicans are likely to win control of the House but the Senate is still in play for both parties.

The 222-213 breakdown would notably be the exact reverse of the results in the 2020 election cycle, when the House split in the Democrats’ favor.

In California’s 13th Congressional District, Republican John Duarte is ahead of Democratic former State Assemblyman Adam Gray by less than 600 votes, with 99 percent of the vote counted, according to The Associated Press.

The race was seen as a toss-up heading into Election Day in the recently redrawn California district.

The 13th Congressional District is currently represented by Rep. Barbara Lee (D), who decided to run in, and win, the new 12th District. Gray was endorsed by California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and both of California’s Democratic senators, Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla, but the redrawn lines made a blue win uncertain.

Did the Republicans win the House of Representatives?

Did the Republicans win the House of Representatives?Republicans won control of the House more than a week after Election Day after securing the 218th seat necessary to gain a narrow majority. However, their slim victory fell short of the "red wave" pundits predicted for the 2022 midterm elections; the Democrats, meanwhile, held onto control of the Senate after Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D) defeated Adam Laxalt.

In Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, the vote count is similarly slim.

With 99 percent of ballots tallied, sitting Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert is up by around 550 votes over Democratic challenger Adam Frisch, a razor-thin margin that kickstarted a recount under Colorado’s election rules.

Frisch at one point was leading Trump-backed Boebert by 64 votes in the reliably red district Boebert had been expected to win easily.

The Democrat conceded the race last week, saying he didn’t think a recount would reverse Boebert’s victory, but the race hasn’t been formally called.
