AZ-1: David Schweikert (R) wins reelection
Rep. David Schweikert defeated Democrat Jevin Hodge to gain a seventh term representing the northeast Phoenix suburbs’ 1st District.
Schweikert survived a second straight election where he was dogged by ethics issues, following violations of campaign finance rules and laws barring the use of congressional staff for campaign work. Hodge was seen as a rising star in Democratic politics but was hampered by the slight Republican registration advantage in the wealthy 1st Congressional District that covers parts of northeast Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills.
CA-13: John Duarte (R) vs. Adam Gray (D)
Like other districts in California’s farm-belt region, the 13th District has a prominent Democratic tilt and a large Latino population. But the most likely voters tend to be white, older, more affluent homeowners, while working-class voters, including many Latinos, are less consistent in getting to the polls. That provides a possible opening for the GOP, despite the 14-point Democratic registration advantage.
The top finisher in the June primary was Republican John Duarte, a businessman and major grape and almond farmer whose top priorities include obtaining adequate water supplies for farmers in the drought-wracked state — a perennial issue in the Central Valley — along with addressing inflation and crime.
His opponent, Democrat Adam Gray, is a state legislator known as a moderate. In a region heavily dependent on agriculture, he’s been critical of state water management and puts water and agriculture at the top of his issues list. He has also stressed his willingness to work across party lines, and promised to make improvements in public safety and education.
CA-22: David G. Valadao wins reelection
Rep. David Valadao defeated Rudy Salas to keep his seat in California's 22nd Congressional District.
New district lines in California have given Democrats a 12 percentage point advantage in the race to secure the House.
In the district, in the state’s Central Valley farm belt, Democrats currently enjoy a 17 percentage point registration edge.
Valadao was one of two House Republicans who voted to impeach Former President Donald Trump and has managed to make it to the general election, along with Republican Dan Newhouse of Washington state.
MI-7: Elissa Slotkin (D) wins reelection
Meanwhile, Michigan Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin narrowly won a third term in the 7th District, which includes Lansing, the state capital. She defeated Republican Tom Barrett, a state senator and Army veteran.
Slotkin, a former CIA Middle East analyst, ran on a record that included support for her party's flagship legislation aimed at reducing carbon emissions, slashing drug costs and taxing large companies.
Barrett said during a debate he would have opposed the bill as too expensive and inflationary.
Slotkin, an abortion rights supporter, described Barrett as rigidly opposed, with no exceptions for rape victims. Barrett said he was "pro-life" but that the issue was for states, not the federal government, to decide.
Slotkin drew a high-profile endorsement from U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, a conservative Republican who lost her own reelection bid in Wyoming's GOP primary after breaking with Trump over the Capitol attack.
The Slotkin-Barrett race was among the most expensive House contests nationwide, with more than $27 million in spending by the campaigns and outside groups.
MN-2: Angie Craig (D) wins
Democratic U.S. Rep. Angie Craig defeated Republican Tyler Kistner on Tuesday, winning a high-stakes rematch and frustrating the GOP’s best hope of flipping a Minnesota congressional seat with House control at stake.
The race in the suburban and rural 2nd District stretching southward from Minneapolis and St. Paul was one of the most expensive in the country, with some $30 million in estimated outside spending.
Meanwhile, Republican Brad Finstad defeated Democrat Jeff Ettinger in a rematch of the August race for a seat vacated when GOP Rep. Jim Hagedorn died of cancer.
Finstad is a former state representative from New Ulm who served as state director for USDA Rural Development during the Trump administration. Ettinger is a former Hormel Foods chief executive.
NV-3: Susie Lee (D) wins
In the 3rd district that runs through the Vegas suburb of Henderson all the way to the Arizona border, Democratic incumbent Rep. Susie Lee has defeated Republican April Becker.
It was one of three key swing seats in Nevada that Republicans had targeted in their bid to take control of the House.
Reps. Dina Titus and Steven Horsford also held off GOP challengers.
NV-4: Steve Horsford (D) wins
Democratic incumbent Rep Steven Horsford has won a fourth term, beating Republican Samuel Peters in Nevada's Fourth Congressional District that stretches from the northern outskirts of Vegas into rural communities to the northeast.
Horsford, who won by 4.9 percentage points in 2020, was slightly favored to fend off Peters.
It's one of three key seats in Nevada that Republicans had hoped to turn in their bid to control the House.
The lone Republican House member from Nevada, six-term Rep. Mark Amodei, retained his seat by defeating Elizabeth Mercedes Krause in rural northern Nevada’s 2nd District where no Democrat has ever won.
NH-1: Chris Pappas (D) wins reelection
Democrat Chris Pappas has won his third term to Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st District.
Pappas, 42, defeated Republican challenger Karoline Leavitt on Tuesday, stopping short her bid to become the youngest woman elected to Congress at age 25.
Pappas, who’s helped run his family’s restaurant in Manchester and was part of a state council that approves spending contracts, championed his support of the newly passed Inflation Reduction Act, which requires Medicare to negotiate lower prices with drug companies.
"I certainly wish tonight’s results came in a little bit differently," Leavitt said in a concession speech in front of supporters. "I’m nevertheless still humbled by the outpouring of support that we received across every single city and town and more."
The two candidates offered contrasting positions on a wide range of issues, including the results of the 2020 presidential election, protecting Social Security and stopping inflation.
NH-2: Annie Kuster (D) wins
Democratic U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster defeated Republican challenger Robert Burns, who runs a pharmaceutical quality control business, over New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District seat.
During a debate last month, the two frequently took jabs and interrupted one another over COVID funding, drug addiction treatment, and abortion rights.
Kuster is well known for supporting the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect the right to access abortion care nationwide after the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Kuster has stated that Burns would support a national abortion ban at conception, but Burns has been saying he’d support a ban at 12 weeks, and now he’d a support a 15-week ban.
NJ-7: Thomas Kean Jr. (R) wins election
Republican Thomas Kean Jr. has won the election to the U.S. House in New Jersey's 7th Congressional District, beating incumbent Rep. Tom Malinowski.
This was a rematch between Malinowski, a two-term incumbent, and Kean Jr., a former state lawmaker.
The redrawn NJ-7 was more favorable to the GOP. The new district includes all of Hunterdon and Warren counties, and parts of Somerset, Sussex, Morris, and Union counties.
The Cook Political Report rated this race leaned Republican, and FiveThirtyEight's model stated that Kean was "favored to win."
NY-3: George Devolder-Santos (R) wins
Republican George Santos defeated Democrat Robert Zimmerman in what was the first known congressional election featuring two gay candidates.
This was Santos’ second run for Congress. Two years ago, he lost by a sizeable margin to U.S. Tom Suozzi, a Democrat who gave up a chance at re-election in an unsuccessful run for governor.
NY-19: Marcus Molinaro (R) wins
Republican Marcus Molinaro has won the election to U.S. House in New York's 19th Congressional District. He ran against Democrat Josh Riley.
Molinaro was elected as Dutchess County’s 7th County Executive in November 2011. At 36, he took office as the youngest County Executive in county history. He was re-elected for a third term in 2019.
Molinaro was defeated by Rep. Pat Ryan in a 2022 special election in a bid to serve the remainder of former Rep. Antonio Delgado's term after he resigned to take on the role of lieutenant governor.
Prior to running for Congress, Molinaro ran an ambitious campaign in 2018 for governor of New York but was defeated by then-Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
NC-13: Wiley Nickel (D) wins
North Carolina Democratic state Sen. Wiley Nickel defeated Republican political newcomer Bo Hines for an open U.S. House seat in the state’s lone swing district along Raleigh’s southern border.
Nickel, who has served Raleigh and nearby Cary in the state Senate since 2019, will now represent in Congress the urban, suburban and rural communities of the newly redrawn and relocated 13th District.
His opponent, a 27-year-old former college football player who had former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, had relocated to the district from Winston-Salem just a month before the May primary.
The 13th District stretches from the southern border of the capital city beltline interstate loop to the farm land outside Goldsboro.
OH-9: Marcy Kaptur (D) wins reelection
Democrat Marcy Kaptur, the longest-serving woman in U.S. House history, won another term Tuesday, defeating Republican J.R. Majewski.
Kaptur, who faced her toughest challenge since first being elected in 1982, beat Majewski, a political newcomer backed by former President Donald Trump.
The 76-year-old is currently the longest-serving woman in the history of the House of Representatives and ranks among the most senior Members of the 117th Congress.
Kaptur also serves as a member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee and said she uses this assignment to advocate for veterans.
Majewski was forced to defend himself in September after The Associated Press reported that he had misrepresented key elements of his Air Force service, including his story of being a combat veteran who served a tour of duty under "tough" circumstances in Afghanistan.
PA-8: Matt Cartwright (D) wins reelection
U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright has been reelected in Pennsylvania's 8th District defeating Republican Jim Bognet in Pennsylvania's 8th Congressional District.
Cartwright is a member of the House Committee on Appropriations. Prior to working in congress, he was an attorney for 25 years.
In 2012, Cartwright defeated 10-term incumbent Rep. Tim Holden in the Democrat primary election.
Bognet, Cartwright's two-time challenger, is a former Trump administration appointee in the Export-Import Bank. He secured the endorsement of Trump in May.
TX-28: Henry Cuellar (D) wins reelection
Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar has won reelection to a 10th term in Texas. His victory Tuesday over Republican Cassy Garcia fends off an unusually aggressive GOP challenge in his South Texas district.
Garcia was one of three Republican Latina candidates who ran competitive House races along the U.S.-Mexico border. The push came after the GOP made inroads with Hispanic voters in 2020.
Cuellar is one of the most conservative Democrats in the House. He narrowly survived a primary challenge this spring.
TX-34: Vicente Gonzalez Jr. (D) wins
The Associated Press projected that Rep. Mayra Flores, the first Mexico-born congresswoman, was unseated by her Democratic opponent, Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, concluding a short tenure in the House that follows a high-profile special election victory in June.
She faced her democratic opponent Vicente Gonzalez, Jr.Flores is pro-life, saying on her website "I will always fight for the unborn and advocate for pro-life policies in Washington. She also describes herself as pro-second amendment and pro-border security.
