      but comments above indicate the eventual spread will be a smaller Republican majority, 234 to 201. Officially it's more like 233-198.

      Moving forward, consider the Congressional Progressive Caucus' Deal for All as a solution to the lame-duck budget and sequestration crisis. Democrats won, now use that!

        There is a much greater chance of flipping votes with this smaller spread.  Log rolling is easier when you only have to flip sixteen or so votes, rather than 30 to 35.

        And this race too, now called by the AP.
          One left in NC, which we are leading, and a run-off in La. between two R's.
