For those interested, NY-22 has finally be decided. It goes to the Republican. When Tenneys sworn-in, the Democrats majority in the House will shrink to 221-212 over the Republicans.

Two vacancies remain, and theyre both in Louisiana. One is the seat that was held by former Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond, who joined President Bidens administration last month. The other was the seat won last November by late GOP Rep.-elect Luke Letlow.

This means the Republicans have a net gain of 13 seats in the house with two to be decided by special election in Louisiana. Chances are those two special's will be split 1-1 bringing the final tally to 222-213. The old house election results from 2018 was 236-199. This also means the GOP will need a net gain of just 5 seats to regain control of the house in 2022.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
