Republicans will retain control of the House

NBC News has projected that the Republicans will retain control of the House. It expects the GOP to hold 235 seats to the Democrats’ 200.

Currently, Republicans hold 247 seats. So NBC is saying the Dems will gain 12.

With so much voting still going on and so many votes to be counted in states where the polls have closed, I don’t think we can take the NBC head count too seriously. But we can bank on its call that the GOP will retain a pretty healthy majority in the House, which is what just about what everyone expected as the election drew to a close.
