    The Republican Party is hoping to build its ranks of Black lawmakers in the House, with one candidate expected to win in a safe GOP district and a handful of others in competitive races, following the planned retirement of its sole current Black member. Republicans made increasing diversity among their ranks a priority this election cycle. Sixty-four Black GOP candidates ran for the House this fall, with about half making it to the general election, according to a senior Republican aide. The Republicans’ best bet in the House is Byron Donalds, a Naples, Fla.-based state lawmaker who has aligned himself...

    STEPHANOPOULOS: “Last time we spoke, you said Democrats had arrows in their quivers to block this nomination. She seems on a path of confirmation right now. Is this a done deal? Or is there still something democrats can do to stop it?” PELOSI: “We’ll see. I’m not … I’m not in the Senate. I talk about how we can win the election. We have to offset whatever this court may do. And the House, the Congress of the United States can overturn these bad decisions. For example the court, on the census, the census is a disagreement we have. This...

    Nancy Pelosi could finally be on her way out of Congress after Republican Rep. Doug Collins introduced on Monday a resolution pushing for the removal of the House Speaker. The resolution questions Pelosi’s “mental fitness” to lead the House of Representatives – a role that has her third in the line of succession for President. “Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession,” Collins said in a statement according...
  • Kevin McCarthy fundraising tops $103M in race to take back the House

    House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy brought in a record-breaking fundraising windfall in the lead-up to the November election as Republicans try to take back control of the House from Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats. McCarthy raised more than $16 million in the third quarter across all seven of his fundraising accounts. That puts his total for the 2020 election at $103 million -- the most ever for a House Republican in any election cycle, a McCarthy campaign aide told Fox News. The fundraising haul has allowed McCarthy to pump funds into individual House races where Republicans are trying to defeat...

    There are 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. As of today the House make-up consists of 232 Democrats, 197 Republicans, 1 traitor Libertarian (Amash), and 5 vacancies (Republicans: Graves, GA-14; Meadows, NC-11; Ratcliffe, TX-04; Hunter, CA-50; Democrat Lewis, GA-05). LetÂ’s assume all the vacant seats remain with their respective parties, and Amash votes with the Democrats. ThatÂ’s 234 Ds to 201 Rs. The GOP needs a net gain of 17 seats to retire Nancy Pelosi as speaker. All 435 seats are up for re-election every two years, on even years. But only a small percentage are considered competitive....

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Fox News on Thursday that talks with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had made progress, but no deal has been reached. Democrats have resisted reaching a deal with Republicans, with some Democratic politicians and strategists worried that any deal to boost the economy might help Trump’s re-election efforts. Some liberal activists oppose any deals with the Trump administration under any circumstances.

    Five Republicans are the only House members to oppose a broadly supported resolution backing a peaceful transfer of presidential power after the November election. Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Clay Higgins of Louisiana, Steve King of Iowa and Thomas Massie of Kentucky dubbed the resolution "a way for Democrats to attack the president," who so far hasn't committed to accepting the results of an election he says is ripe for fraud. Gaetz argued that the resolution is meant to "disguise the fact that [Democrats] will refuse to accept the election results unless they win."

    A stimulus package proposed by Democrats in the House of Representatives includes a number of items that will benefit illegal immigrants -- including an expansion of stimulus checks and protections from deportations for illegal immigrants in certain “essential” jobs. The $2.2 trillion bill includes language that allows some illegal immigrants -- who are “engaged in essential critical infrastructure labor or services in the United States” -- to be placed into “a period of deferred action” and authorized to work if they meet certain conditions. It also grants protections to those employers who hire those undocumented immigrants, ordering that “the hiring,...

    Newsweek ^ | 8/20/20
    there are two likely legal results of the Trump "nullify the election" propaganda campaign: (1) The Supreme Court could potentially disqualify electors on the basis that their state's results are too unclear to certify before the December 14 statutory deadline when the Electoral College must meet, thereby throwing the entire election to the U.S. House of Representatives for resolution, as set out in the 12th Amendment to the Constitution; or (2) the Supreme Court might point to the Electoral Count Act of 1887, which states that the House and Senate together will decide which Electoral College electors are to be...
  • U.S. House Battlegrounds, 2020

    Last updated: September 23, 2020 Elections for all 435 U.S. House seats will take place in 2020. Ballotpedia has identified 39 of the 435 House races (9.0%) as battlegrounds. Of the 39 seats, 20 have Democratic incumbents, 18 have Republican incumbents, and one has a Libertarian incumbent. These battleground districts were selected by examining the 2018 winner's margin of victory, the results of the 2016 presidential election in the district, whether the incumbent is seeking re-election, and whether the incumbent is serving his or her first term in Congress. Race ratings from the Cook Political Report, Sabato's Crystal Ball, and...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has officially informed her Democratic Party caucus that the House of Representatives could decide the presidential election — and has urged them to focus on winning races that could decide the outcome. The House could decide the election if no candidate achieves a majority in the Electoral College.

  • Feehery: A surprising Republican wave election could be looming

    Political waves come unexpectedly. That is especially the case when it comes to the House of Representatives. In 1994, nobody expected the House to flip to the Republicans for the first time in 40 years. The Contract with America was seen as a curiosity, Rep. Newt Gingrich’s (R-Ga.) vanity project. The media roundly lampooned it. And then November rolled around and history was made. In September 2006, George Bush wasn’t that popular, the Iraq War wasn’t going that well, but most pundits and most Republicans thought the House would hold. Then the Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) scandal consumed Washington, and...

    Democrats seem to win this seat whenever the GOP goes south(2006) or loses it toa pretty boy at the top of the ticket(2008). 2018 was different. Trump won by 7% and Republican John Faso found a new way to lose(by 3%). The loss was to a rapper. Perhaps BLM/Antifa will hand it back to us unless the district has become too ethnic but if Trump won so can we.

    While two months ago, the retaking the house might have seemed like a stretch, but if these lefty clowns keep burning buildings, assaulting cops, and forcing Democratic mayors to flee their residences, then it could be within reach. Patrick Murray commented on Monmouth’s polling of the House races and found that in the six most competitive contests this cycle, the generic Republican is ahead by 10 points... We still have a long way to go, but with Labor Day upon us—more folks start to pay attention. If the mayhem in the streets, thanks to leftists continues, expect more shifts across...

    President Donald Trump heartily criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recently unearthed violation of California’s coronavirus order with a pair of tweets on Wednesday morning. “Crazy Nancy Pelosi is being decimated for having a beauty parlor opened, when all others are closed, and for not wearing a Mask – despite constantly lecturing everyone else,” Trump wrote. “We will almost certainly take back the House, and send Nancy packing!” The president added that “the Beauty Parlor owner must really dislike Crazy Nancy Pelosi. Turning her in, on tape.” Trump further criticized Pelosi for backing Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy in the state’s...

    If an appeals court does not grant Congress access to President Donald Trump's financial records quickly, lawmakers will "almost certainly" miss their chance to review them before the end of Trump's term, House Counsel Doug Letter argued Monday. In a new filing with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Letter urged the judges to resist calls to send the case back to a lower court and instead resolve the matter — which began with a subpoena in April 2019 — promptly. "If this Court does not resolve this case now, the Trump Plaintiffs will almost certainly have succeeded in blocking...
