Renewed Republican control of the House has moved into view as Election Day's initial returns show Democrats failing to make inroads into the GOP's current majority in the chamber.
With more than a third of all 435 House races called by The Associated Press, Republicans had won 103 and were leading in 87 others.
To control the chamber, a party must have 218 seats.
Democrats had won 62 seats and were ahead in 57 other races.
The only incumbent to lose in the early going was Rep. Ben Chandler, D-Ky. Republicans have also picked up two open seats in North Carolina and another in Oklahoma.
Democrats had initially hoped to win the 25 additional seats they would need to control the House, but that size gain now seems beyond reach.
