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.
