Midterm elections roundup: More uncalled races

Four governor’s races, three Senate contests and 33 House races have not been called yet by the NBC News Decision Desk.

By and

More races have been called since Wednesday morning, with the Georgia Senate race heading to a runoff and the ranked-choice process set to decide Alaska’s Senate race. 

That leaves four gubernatorial races, two Senate contests and 33 House races have not been called yet by the NBC News Decision Desk. In the Senate, if Democrats hold onto Arizona and Nevada, they retain control of the Senate, regardless of what happens in the Georgia runoff. 

In the House, Republicans have to win eight of the 33 uncalled seats to get to 218 (and thus the majority), while Democrats would have to win 26 of the remaining races to hold onto the chamber. Twenty of the uncalled House races are held by Democrats, 10 are held by Republicans, and three are brand new seats due to reapportionment. 

Here’s a look at the uncalled races per the NBC News Decision Desk as of 7:00 a.m. ET:

Statewide races (6): 

Too close to call: The three-way race in Oregon Governor has been deemed too close to call, with Democratic Tina Kotek holding a narrow lead over Republican Christine Drazen and independent Betsy Johnson pulling roughly 9% of the vote.  

Too early to call: Alaska Governor (72% of the expected vote is in); Arizona Senate and Arizona Governor (76% of the vote is in); and Nevada Senate and Nevada Governor (84% is in).

Toss up House races, per the Cook Political Report with Amy Walter (15):

NV-4: Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford vs. Republican Sam Peters.

OR-5: An open seat, with Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer.

WA-3: An open seat, with Republican Joe Kent vs. Democrat Marie Gluesnekamp Perez.

Potential surprise (1):

CO-3: This race wasn’t expected to be competitive, but GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert is in a very close race against Democrat Aaron Frisch, with Frisch leading Boebert by just 64 votes.  

Safe districts (5):

Five Democratic California districts — CA-6, CA-15, CA-21, CA-34, CA-37 — have not been called. Biden won them by between 18 and 73 points. Three of those five feature Democrat vs. Democrat contests, thanks to the state’s Top 2 primary, so those will stay in the Democratic column.
