As per data of still-open contests throughout the country, in order for the Republicans to take control of the United States Congress, they need to win just less than 1/3rd of the outstanding congressional races around the country.
According to a report published by the Epoch Times on Saturday, Republican candidates “have to pick up only 7 seats of 23 tight contests that remained uncalled to flip the Democrats’ razor-thin advantage in the House.”
Five days after the final votes were cast in the midterm elections of 2022, the publication made notice of the fact that Republicans “have a majority of 211 House seats versus Democrats’ 199”.
To win a House majority, which requires 218 members, Republican candidates need to win just 7 further seats out of the slightly less than 2 dozen that are still open.
The bulk of the races that are being called are taking place in the state of California, which has a total of 13.
Other states like Oregon, Colorado, and Alaska also were waiting for residents to come home.
