NR­CC Chair­man Steve Stivers (R-OH 15) con­ceded Monday in an MS­N­BC in­ter­view that 70 seats could be in play in 2018. Re­fer­ring to the mil­lions spent in Geor­gia’s spe­cial elec­tion on Tues­day, Stivers said neither party could af­ford to du­plic­ate that in­vest­ment in a cycle with “70 com­pet­it­ive seats.” (Wash­ing­ton Times)

UP NEXT. Speak­er Paul Ry­an (R-WI 01) “is prom­ising to over­haul the tax code by the end of the year des­pite polit­ic­al di­vi­sions among Re­pub­lic­ans and a crowded le­gis­lat­ive agenda for Con­gress. Ry­an is due to give a speech on tax re­form Tues­day af­ter­noon to the Na­tion­al As­so­ci­ation of Man­u­fac­tur­ers.” (AP)

BI­PAR­TIS­AN­SHIP. “A bi­par­tis­an group of House law­makers asked the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion Monday to re­con­sider its sup­port for end­ing the fed­er­al tax de­duc­tion for state and loc­al tax de­duc­tions and warned that elim­in­at­ing the break would res­ult in even high­er taxes for people in high-tax states. … Monday’s let­ter was led by two New Jer­sey­ans:” Reps. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ 09) and Le­onard Lance (R-NJ 07). “While most of the sig­nat­or­ies were Demo­crats, the let­ter also in­cluded sev­er­al blue-state Re­pub­lic­ans.” Reps. Tom Ma­cAr­thur (R-NJ 03), Rod­ney Frel­inghuysen (R-NJ 11), and Chris Smith (R-NJ 04) signed, as did” Reps. Peter King (R-NY 02) and Claudia Ten­ney (R-NY 22). (Wash­ing­ton Ex­am­iner)
