Now that the Republican Rouzer conceded his race for a NC seat in the House, the Democrats have picked up 8 seats, and need 17 more in the 2014 middterm to gain control of the House for 2015-2016. Would be sweet but is it possible, especially with the extreme gerrymandering pulled off by Republicans by the last couple of decades?
Interesting that even if may more Americans votie for Democrat candidates than Republican candidates in the House, the Republicans because of the extreme gerrymandering (unlike any gerrymandering ever seen before), can still retain control of the House. We can only hope the Republicans keep placing only white men in committe chairs, for example. And keep saying stupid stuff. Maybe we will eventually be able to overcome their freakish gerrymandering. I am confident, even about 2014.
