Democrats maintain a slight lead in each of the two additional House races that remain too close to call. A third unresolved House race in Louisiana will pit two Republican incumbents against each other in a December 8 run-off election.

The balance of power now stands at 234 Republicans, which includes the winner of the Louisiana race, and 199 Democrats. Before the election, Republicans held 242 seats and Democrats had 193.

The remaining races are Florida's 18th district between Republican incumbent Rep. Allen West and Democrat Patrick Murphy and North Carolina's 7th district between Republican David Rouzer and Democratic incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre.

It appears that almost every close race went to the Democrat.

If it winds up 234 and 201, it would require a shift of 17 seats in 2014 to bring control back to the Dems.
