Seven incoming House members to watch

More than 70 incoming lawmakers will be sworn into the House this January after winning their races earlier this month.


Republicans are poised to control the House next year, with 220 seats having been called in their favor compared to Democrats’ 212. Three races remain uncalled.


Next year’s crop of freshman lawmakers in the House includes 37 Republicans and 35 Democrats who hail from 32 states across the country.
