Democrat chances to retake US House of Representatives

Reading the tea leaves. From The Hill newspaper:

Frank became the 17th Democratic member of the House to decide not to run for reelection next year, compared to just six on the Republican side. All six GOP members are departing to run for another office, while only eight of the 17 Democrats have their eyes focused upward. . . .

Democrats were initially apprehensive that the once-per-decade redistricting process would prove catastrophic for the party, because Republicans controlled the map-drawing process in so many states.

But while the process is far from complete in many states, results thus far indicate redistricting will amount to a wash for both parties. . . .
