“Absentee/Military uncounted? Then we win, yes???”

You can’t assume that. Last year there was a special election in NY-20. The Republican led by 17 initially, after the absentees were counted, the Democrat won by 401. And this is a GOP district.

Thankfully, the Democrat Murphy was defeated this year.

I would love to see them get to 240 just because it would be historic. As it is, there are more Republicans in the House than at any time in my lifetime! I hope to live long enough to see 56+ GOP senators since 55 has been their ceiling since the 1920a I believe. They came close in 1996, 1998, and 2004 but just can’t seem to break that barrier. 2012 is possible, but it would be tough. It could happen in 2014.
