Republicans Match Post-World War II High in House

Saturday, 06 December 2014 09:30 PM EST

Republicans will hold at least 246 seats in the House come January, matching the post-World War II high of the Truman administration.

Republicans will expand their current 234-201 advantage by a dozen seats in the next Congress — with one race still undecided.

On Saturday, Republicans kept control of two Louisiana seats by winning runoffs.

The House breakdown next year will be 246-188, but could grow.

There's still an automatic recount in a Democratic-held district in the Tucson, Arizona-area. Rep. Ron Barber trails Republican challenger Martha McSally by fewer than 200 voters.

If McSally wins, Republicans would have 247 seats, the largest majority since 1929-31 when the GOP controlled 270 seats in President Herbert Hoover's administration.

Republicans will run the Senate, too.
