Five House Races To Watch On Election Night

If Republicans win either or both of Chandler and Donnelly's seats, they are almost assuredly on their way to taking control of the House. Even if they do not carry either, but win the Ellsworth and Hill seats, they could still be on a trajectory for a net gain in the mid-40s. If Rep. John Yarmuth falls to Tea Party-backed GOP nominee Todd Lally in Democratic-leaning Louisville, however, then all bets are off and Republicans could be on their way to picking up in excess of 60 seats. The situation in the House is much more fluid than it is in the Senate, so thank Indiana and Kentucky for giving us a neat early measuring stick when polls close on Tuesday.
