House Republicans added one more to their ranks this week after New York Democratic Rep. Max Rose conceded defeat Thursday in the Staten Island-area district.
I received a gracious phone call from Rep. Max Rose today conceding the election, wrote State Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis on Twitter...
Rose, a freshman Democrat in the lower chamber had flipped the seat two years ago in what is widely considered one of the most conservative districts in New York City. Rose was one of 41 Democratic lawmakers to oust Republicans in 2018 to reclaim the House majority halfway into President Donald Trumps first term putting California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi back in the speakers chair.
The Republican victory in New York marks the GOPs tenth pick-up for a net gain of six seats in the House, a majority of whom are women...
As of this writing with several races still being decided, Democrats are on track to retain a narrow House majority. According to the New York Times, Democrats are so far projected to hold 218 seats to Republicans 202, with 15 states remaining to be called.
Last weeks losses however, have stunned Democrats where leadership expected to pick up as many as 15 to 20 seats expanding their ranks. On Monday, Illinois Democrat Rep.

Republicans have now flipped 10 House seats:
CA48: Michelle Steel FL27: Maria Elvira Salazar FL26: Carlos Gimenez IA01: Ashley Hinson MI03: Peter Meijer MN07: Michelle Fischbach NM02: Yvette Herrell NY11: Nicole Malliotakis OK05: Stephanie Bice SC01: Nancy Mace
Flipped 10 to R, but a net gain of only 6. Must have been some retirements.
Dems may only have 222 or 223 seats.
If the GOPe hadn’t dug the party into a deep hole in 2018, they GOP could have taken back the House majority this election.
Well I won’t be happy until Trump gets his second Term......we shall see....
Staten Island ping.
Me either, but the dumbos got shellacked in the House.
RPC has a net R gain of +8 with four others heading to victory.
Jeanne Ives in the Illinois 6th District needs a recount! The Dem incumbent Sean Casten stole the election with the same machines used in Michigan.
If the GOPe allows the leftists to steal the presidency in 2022 I will vote against every incumbent Republican in the primary.
I did that! And I just destroyed Faux News too! Aunt Nanzi is planning a BIIIG party for me!
Yes they did.......but all these republicans rode into victories because of Trump, few would have done so on their own if any!
Democrats were so intent on winning the presidency, that they didn’t have enough time or will to defend their house seats. To them, the presidency is what matters, while they hoped that luck would keep their seats safe.
but dems flipped 3 seats, per a comment on a prior thread here today
NY3, my CD, would be another flip. Santo leads Suozzi by 1.5 points with 100% counted.
Not sure why Big Media hasn't called it.
If those voting machines can be proved to be dramatically rigged (in time), then possibly enough House seats might flip to give the Republicans the House (plus the Senate and Presidency).
Pray with me.
in what is widely considered one of the most conservative districts in New York City...
A little slice of Heaven in between two Hells. (Brooklyn/Manhattan on one side/central NJ on the other)
Yes. Current mood for me on that one:
Try this instead....
