Uncalled Races - November 14 Update


34 of the 36 gubernatorial races have been called. There have been three flips thus far. Democrats won in both Maryland and Massachusetts as popular GOP governors retired in otherwise deep blue states. In a much closer race, Republican Joe Lombardo ousted Democrat Steve Sisolak in Nevada.

Arizona: A hotly-contested battle between Democrat Katie Hobbs and Republican Kari Lake remains too close to call as of Monday afternoon. However, given the vote that remains to be counted, Hobbs looks to be favored to win

Alaska: Republican Mike Dunleavy looks well-positioned to win reelection. Should he drop below 50% in the interim, the race will be decided by a Ranked Choice tabulation on the 23rd.

U.S. House

Our results provider Decision Desk has called 416 House races. Republicans have won 215 seats, Democrats 201. 

There are three uncalled races in California where both candidates on the ballot are Democrats. That will bring the Democratic total to 204.  

To keep control, Democrats must win at least 14 of the 16 remaining races. It looks like they will fall short, with the GOP winning 220-222 seats. Follow the live results below. We've also highlighted a few cases where either the Associated Press or ABC News has made a race call not yet made by Decision Desk.

Alaska: This is expected to be decided in the Ranked Choice tabulation on November 23.

California: A number of these races will not end up being all that close, but the state's drawn-out process for counting also impacts when these races can be projected with the level of certainty required.

ABC has called District 6 Democrat Ami Bera. Both ABC and the Associated Press have called District 26 for Democrat Julie Brownley.

Colorado: One of the most highly visible contests left on the board, as polarizing GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert seeks a second term.

Maine: The Ranked Choice tabulation will occur on Tuesday. That result will appear in the first embed below, with the Election Day vote underneath. 

Oregon: District 6 is a new seat created in redistricting.

U.S. Senate

The final seat will be determined in a Georgia runoff on December 6. Pennsylvania is the only Senate seat that has flipped thus far. In Alaska, we know a Republican will win, but we won't know which one until November 23

That runoff remains important. As Roll Call notes, "In a 50-50 Senate, operating precedents provide for equal membership on committee rosters, and committee rules generally require a majority vote for issuing of a subpoena without approval of the ranking member. Therefore, with just a one-seat advantage, Democratic committee chairs would yield additional powers."
