WashPost Forecaster: GOP Could Lose 38 Seats and House Majority

Trump washes his hands of insurgency against GOP incumbents

That changed on Wednesday morning, January 10, when a statement was released by Issa's office in Washington, D.C. declaring he would retire at the end of his term this year. David Yancey was announced as the victor of the 94th House of Delegates district election, his opponent said she won't seek another recount in the race.

Thorburn said the district's demographics are tilting toward a constituency that favors more progressive politics. Republicans hold a slim 51-49 advantage in House seats after Democrats notched massive gains in November elections.

"As evidenced by his work as Oversight Chairman, Congressman Darrell Issa is a fearless protector of integrity in government".

Royce and Issa's districts are both in expensive television markets - further stretching national Republicans who are on defense across dozens of districts in the 2018 midterm elections.

Democrats and liberal outside groups have been targeting Issa, Royce and five other California Republicans representing congressional districts that Clinton won.

Issa's 49th district is widely considered to be one of the seats most vulnerable to a Democratic challenger in 2018.

"In the 49th district, Democrats are locked in what is fast becoming one of the bloodiest primaries in America".

After Democrats flipped three other seats in special elections around Georgia, Republicans must be getting nervous. We look forward to facing whoever limps out of the Democrats' battle royale: "black and blue, and broke".

Issa, 64, was almost unseated in 2016 when Democratic Douglas Applegate came within 1,700 votes of winning the northern San Diego-county based seat, according to data from the California Secretary of State.

But political analysts have rated his district, comprising suburbs southeast of Los Angeles, as a battleground in the November elections, after voters there backed Democrat Hillary Clinton with a margin of 9 percentage points over Republican Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race.

The district stretches from La Jolla in San Diego and up the coast to Dana Point in southern Orange County.

"With a lot of Republican talent in North County and South Orange County, I have no doubt several well qualified candidates will emerge", the chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego County, Tony Krvaric, said on Facebook.

The list includes including Financial Services Committee Chair Jeb Hensarling of Texas, Committee on Science, Space, and Technology Chair Lamar Smith, also of Texas, Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania and House Administration Committee Chair Gregg Harper of Mississippi.

Rep. Steve Stivers of OH, the chairman of the Republican campaign arm, predicted that a contentious Democratic primary would leave the eventual nominee "black and blue, and broke" and benefit the Republicans. The no preference voters hold the wildcard at 25 percent.
