House Roundup: N.Y.'s Bishop In Sudden Danger; Giffords Safe

Giffords, who saw fellow Arizona Democrats Ann Kirkpatrick and Harry Mitchell go down to defeat, managed to avoid their fate, despite the fact all three represent districts won by John McCain in 2008.

Eight other Democratic-held House seats have yet to be called by the AP -- California's 11th and 20th, Illinois' 8th, Kentucky's 6th, New York's 25th, Texas' 27th, Virginia's 11th and Washington's 2nd. Each party leads in four contests, but Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Wash.) saw the biggest improvement in his fortune over the weekend, as he jumped out to a 4,000-vote lead over Snohomish County Commissioner John Koster (R). Larsen trailed Koster on Election Night, but he's opened up a widening lead as officials count all of the late-arriving mail ballots in the contest.
