DemDaily: The Final Primaries: The House

All 435 seats in the US House of Representatives are up (Rs:246/Ds:187/2 vacancies) and, while the chances of wrestling control of the House from the Republicans is unlikely, we have learned anything is possible this election cycle.

While all the presidential primaries are over, there are still ten congressional primaries between now and September 13th in nine states and the Territory of Guam. These remaining primaries will decide which candidates will go head to head in the general election November 8th including some of the tightest races in the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, and New Hampshire.

If you are in these remaining states, get out and vote in the primary! As we all know, every vote counts!
