House Dems Speaking Soon

House Democratic leaders will be the first to take the stage tonight -- another sign that the party's hopes of taking back the lower chamber are all but gone.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee just advised reporters that Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and DCCC chair Steve Israel will hit the stage between 8:45 p.m. and 9 p.m. Eastern. If Democrats had a chance at picking up the net-25 seats they needed to take back the House, Pelosi and Israel wouldn't speak before the results were known.

There's only been one House race that's changed hands as early results have come in, but it's gone the other way. The Associated Press reported Democratic Rep. Ben Chandler of Kentucky has lost his re-election bid to Republican Andy Barr.

Senate Democrats, who are going to have a much better night, haven't taken the stage yet.
