The Republican Party will win the House by a margin of nine seats, according to a projection by NBC News.

The forecast has Republicans holding 222 seats and Democrats 213.

The current tally, with 33 seats in play, is 210 for the GOP and 192 for the Democrats.


NBC cites the American Civics Exchange’s betting odds for the Republicans winning the House, which has risen to 80.3%

Meanwhile, Republicans have 49 seats in the Senate to the Democrats 48, with three races undecided.

The Georgia race between incumbent Democratic Sen. Rafael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker will be decided in a runoff Dec. 6.

In Nevada, Republican Adam Laxalt’s lead over incumbent Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto is down to just 9,000 votes as officials count mail-in ballots in the state’s largest counties.

Ballot counting will continue through next week, but the majority could be counted Friday.

In Arizona, amid continued ballot-count delays that followed voting machine breakdowns on Election Day, incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly leads with 51.7% over Republican challenger Blake Masters’ 46.1.

In the Arizona governor’s race, Democrat Katie Hobbs leads by more than 1 point with more than 500,000 votes yet to be counted, 50.7% to 49.3%.

Lake told Fox News Digital on Thursday she believes she will prevail.

“I am 100% going to win. I have absolute 100% confidence that I will be the next governor of Arizona,” Lake said.

Despite her party’s disappointing performance Tuesday, she said she thinks it should continue with “America first” policies she described as “common sense solutions.”

She listed some of the Republicans she believes will help lead the party into the future, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

But her first choice to run for president in 2024 is former President Trump. He is “still the leader” of the party, Lake said.
