The Race For Capitol Hill: Key House Races To Watch On Election Night


As the night's election results unfold, much of the attention will be paid toward the political death match between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. However, there are a number of important races unfolding in the U.S. House of Representatives. In 2018, the Democratic Party grabbed hold of the House with upstars like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Two years later, the Democratic Party is looking to take hold of the U.S. Senate and the White House. Waiting in the background, Republican upstarts like Kelly Loeffler are looking to upset the apple cart. Not to mention, the seats of iconic politicians like Rep. John Lewis will be filled tonight. Here's a quick look at tonight's key U.S. House of Representative races.
