Washington D.C., Nov 6, 2020 / 12:15 pm (CNA).- As ballots are still being counted to determine key House races, Democrats are projected to hold control of the chamber—but by a smaller margin. The shift could impact the Democrats’ priorities in the coming years.
As of Friday afternoon, ABC News had projected Democrats with 214 House seats and Republicans with 202.
House Republicans had gained a net total of six seats in the House and are looking to flip several more, in states such as New York, Iowa, and California where districts are either still counting ballots or may hold a recount. While Republicans had flipped eight seats, Democrats flipped two in Raleigh and Greensboro, North Carolina.
