Morning Jay: Special "Penultimate Predictions" Edition!
Republicans will gain 61 House seats and 8 Senate seats.

But that’s where the problem is. At this point, Republicans are in striking distance of the Senate majority, but there are still too many races on the bubble – California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Washington, and West Virginia – to make that call. The GOP has to go six for seven in these toss-up races. Even though I would give them the edge in most of them, an 86 percent success rate would be no little feat; it would be easy to slip in at least two of these contests.
Until these races firm up, I am sticking with my previous estimate of Republican gains of 8 seats in the Senate.
