Cook House Ratings: Republicans have the “advantage”

February 3, 2023

It’s a long way to election day, but Republicans have the “advantage” in the battle for the House, according to The Cook Political Report.

Two interesting nuggets from Dave Wasserman’s analysis:

  • 42 House seats are considered competitive with “most of those currently held by Democrats compared to Republicans.”
  • Redistricting in Ohio and North Carolina could “eviscerate up to seven Democratic seats.”

NRCC National Press Secretary: “House Republicans are on offense and positioned to grow our majority as we hold the Biden Administration accountable.”
