Where We Stand: House Democrats Looking at a 30-Seat Gain

Here's a look at where things stand:

House: Democrats +21

Democrats have won the following GOP districts: NC-11, CT-05, IN-02, IN-08, IN-09, KY-03, NH-01, NH-02, OH-18, FL-16, Fl-22, PA-07, AZ-08, PA-10, NY-20, NY-24, AZ-05, PA-04, KS-02, IA-01 and TX-22.

The outstanding seats where Democratic candidates hold leads: CT-02, PA-06, PA-08, IA-02, MN-01, NM-01, NY-19, WI-08, CO-07, WY-AL. If each of those races came through, Democrats would pick up 30 seats.

Senate: Democrats +3

Democrats have won the following GOP-held states: Pennsylvania, Ohio and Rhode Island.

They hold small leads in Virginia and Montana while Republicans are ahead in Missouri. To win the Senate back, Democrats must hold on in the first two and hope state Auditor Claire McCaskill (D) can come back to beat Sen. Jim Talent (R). Democrats are optimistic about the Show Me State as major precincts in St. Louis and Kansas City remain uncounted.

Governors: Democrats +5

Democrats have take over the following states: Arkansas, Colorado, Massachusetts, New York and Ohio.

There are several other races where Democrats are either ahead or tied but have not yet been called by the Associated Press. That includes Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota and Nevada. If Democrats win each of those contests they will gain nine governors' offices.
