The Blue Wave Keeps Growing for House Dems

Chris Cillizza of CNN sums up some of the notable changes in the world of political handicapping following Tuesday’s big Democratic pickup in a special election in Pennsylvania:

On Friday, CNN changed the ratings of 17 House contests — all in Democrats favor. The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan handicapping site, moved 9 races in Democrats’ favor on Friday as well

…CNN rates 69 GOP-held seats as competitive as compared to just 15 for Democrats. The Cook Report now carries 73 Republican seats as competitive compared to a meager 17 for Democrats. Inside Elections, another political tip sheet, has 57 Republican seats in its competitive ranks and just 12 Democratic seats.

Democrats need only 23 seats to re-take the majority in the House of Representatives.
