Florida’s 26th congressional district encompasses southwestern Miami, the Florida Keys, as well as the Everglades. These are areas most at risk of the rising sea levels due to Climate change. RealClearPolitics has Republican incumbent Carlos Curbelo up 3 points in the polls, but will he maintain the lead? His party has consistently had little interest in climate change and Trump himself has called it a Chinese hoax. His contender Debbie Mucarsel-Powell has been endorsed by a number of environmental groups in Florida. Who will win the House race in Florida’s 26th district?

Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala had her first debate with her Republican challenger, Maria Salazar, over the weekend and it seems as though Salazar came out on top. Although Hillary Clinton won Florida’s 27th district in 2016 (by a margin of 58 to 39 percent), it seems that Shalala has found herself in a tight race with political rookie, Salazar. Who will win Florida’s 27th seat?

Democratic challenger Jared Golden has raised $2.7 million for his congressional race, nearly five times what Republican incumbent Bruce Poliquin has managed to pull together. As Golden and Poliquin gear up for their last televised debate, it looks to be Poliquin leading the race for Maine’s 2nd congressional district. Who will win the House seat?

Retired Marine fighter pilot Lt. Col. Amy McGrath is currently neck and neck with incumbent Andy Barr for Kentucky’s 6th district. Many Democrats watch this district in particular as a sign of whether they could win a House majority. Trump even spoke in Richmond Saturday night and did not hold back against McGrath. In this tight race, who will win Kentucky’s 6th district seat?
