Two more House races were called in favor of Democrats Monday evening.

Veteran lawmakers Reps. Rick LarsenRichard (Rick) Ray LarsenFAA: New manufacturing issue discovered in undelivered Boeing 787 Dreamliners Newest Boeing 737 Max takes first test flight Democrats seek answers from Boeing, FAA after production issues with 737 Max, Dreamliner jets MORE (D-Wash.) and Gerry ConnollyGerald (Gerry) Edward ConnollyHouse bill targets US passport backlog Democrats weigh next steps on Jan. 6 probe Tlaib, Democrats slam GOP calls for border oversight to fight opioid crisis MORE (D-Va.) won their seats.


Larsen beat Republican challenger John Koster with 51 percent of the vote — The Associated Press called the race Monday evening. Larsen saw his lead expand as votes came in from Snohomish County, which houses Everett and is the biggest county in the district.

Meanwhile, Republican Keith Fimian will concede to Connolly on Tuesday, The Washington Post reported.

Connolly led Fimian by less than 1,000 votes and was declared the winner, although it was unsure if Fimian would request a recount. The concession marks his second straight loss in the 11th district.

Monday night's results leave eight races up in the air: Reps. Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.), Jim Costa (D-Calif.), Ben Chandler (D-Ky.), Melissa Bean (D-Ill.), and Dan Maffei (D-N.Y.) are awaiting results.

Meanwhile, Rep. Tim BishopTimothy (Tim) Howard BishopOn The Trail: The political losers of 2020 Dem candidate 'struck by the parallels' between Trump's rise and Hitler's Dems separated by 29 votes in NY House primary MORE (D-N.Y.) saw his election-night lead shrink as ballots were counted. Bishop was ahead by a 3,461-vote margin last Tuesday, which caused The Associated Press to call the election for him. But recanvassing of the voting machines flipped the results to a 383-vote lead for Republican Randy Altschuler. Bishop's campaign requested a hand recount.

And there's likely to be a recount in Rep. Bob Etheridge’s (D-N.C.) race. Republican Renee Ellmers leads Etheridge by 1,646 votes, according to unofficial results. As long as Ellmers’s lead doesn’t exceed 1 percent of the vote, or about 1,800 ballots, Etheridge can call for a recount, which his campaign says he will.

Rep. Solomon Ortiz (D-Texas) is requesting a recount after trailing Republican Blake FarentholdRandolph (Blake) Blake FarentholdThe biggest political upsets of the decade Members spar over sexual harassment training deadline Female Dems see double standard in Klobuchar accusations MORE by less than 800 votes.

The Larsen and Connolly victories were the third of the outstanding races called for Democrats in the past few days. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) won her race over the weekend.
