House Races to Watch in 2018

The results of this year’s midterm elections will tell us a lot about the supposed “blue wave,” whether or not there is a payoff in being a Trump loyalist, and what the future of the Democratic and Republican parties will look like. This article is the first in a series from Quibbl Politics that will highlight 2018’s top House races.

Watching the news coverage on Election Day will be far more exciting if you know about some of the more important races.

That’s why Quibbl Politics is bringing you three of the top House races that should be on your radar.

Some of the top 10 House races to watch include:

Minnesota: Who will be the next congressperson of Minnesota’s 2nd district?

Minnesota’s 2nd congressional district has been named one of the top 10 House races to watch by Politico. While the Republican and Democratic primaries have yet to occur, we can trust that the winners will be Angie Craig (D) and the incumbent Jason Lewis (R). Craig faced off against Lewis in 2016 but lost by less than two points. Craig blamed the loss on independent candidate Paula Overby, who garnered 7% of the vote. Who will be the next congressperson of Minnesota’s 2nd district?

Iowa: Who will be the next congressperson of Iowa’s 1st district?

Iowa’s 1st congressional district has been named one of the top 10 House races to watch by the Washington Post. The June 5th primary election gave us Abby Finkenauer as the Democratic nominee, and Rod Blum, the incumbent, as the Republican nominee. If she wins, Finkenauer could be the first woman from Iowa elected to the House of Representatives. Who will be the next congressperson of Iowa’s 1st district?

Pennsylvania: Who will be the next congressperson of Pennsylvania’s 6th congressional district?

Pennsylvania’s 6th congressional district has been named one of the top 10 House races to watch by the Washington Post. Republicans typically win with ease in this district, but this year things could turn out different, given that the incumbent, Ryan Costello, waited until after the filing deadline to announce that he would not seek reelection. On the ballot in November will be Chrissy Houlahan (D) and Greg McCauley (R). Who will be the next congressperson of Pennsylvania’s 6th congressional district?
