47. In the House

Vote here sign

It is 47 days until the next U.S. congressional midterm election. There was no column posted yesterday.

We’re moving back to the races for the U.S. House of Representatives. Here are the 33 Democrats in races currently considered by fivethirtyeight.com as “leaning,” which means they’re close but one candidate has a perceived advantage. Twenty-five are Republicans and eight Democrats.

If this is confusing you, maybe a glance at Monday’s column will help you understand what we’re talking about.

Without further ado, here are the 33 Democrats in races where one candidate is currently considered to have at least a 60 percent chance of winning but less than 75 percent. Click on names to visit their Twitter pages, and then follow and support them. Some were on the toss-up list Monday but have moved since then.

Alyse S. Galvin, Alaska’s at-large.

Josh Harder, California’s 10th.

T.J. Cox, California’s 21st.

Katie Hill, California’s 25th.

Gil Cisneros, California’s 39th.

Harley Rouda, California’s 48th.

Diane Mitsch Bush, Colorado’s 3rd.

Nancy Soderberg, Florida’s 6th.

Kristen Carlson, Florida’s 15th.

Mary Barzee Flores, Florida’s 25th.

Elaine Luria, Virginia’s 2nd.

Abigail Spanberger, Virginia’s 7th.

Lisa Brown, Washington’s 5th.

Dan Kohl, Wisconsin’s 6th.

As stated above, some of these races sitting on the border of two fields are subject to moving. Just as some of the names above moved from toss-up to leaning since Monday, here are four races recently added to the toss-up category.

Katie Porter, California’s 45th.

Jared Golden, Maine 2nd.

Kara Eastman, Nebraska’s 2nd.

Tomorrow, it begins to get real.
