    Until certified next week, these are still unofficial results.

    2 seats are aparently to close to call, Dist. 8 has the only incumbent that is close to losing their seat. The other seat Dist 13 was vacated and the race is close for both.

    Other than the undecided vacated seat above, 23 seats were vacated in the house. Dist, 16, 22, 23, 27, 58, 59, 69, 75, 76, 78, 82, 84, 115, 119, 121, 122, 123, 136, 137, 144, 162, 175, and 178.

    Below are the districts (from those above) that will most likely have a different vote than the previous office holder.

    82, Was a B rated Repub, replaced by (probably D rated) Dem.
    122, Was a B rated Dem, replaced by (probably D rated) Dem.
    175, Was a C rated Dem, replaced by (probably B rated) Dem.

    So right now it looks like we lost a net of one pro-gun vote just like in the Senate. Once the 2 seats are finally decided I will know more but for the most part it seems that those that got replaced, were replaced by people that will vote similarly.

    While gaining an anti-gun vote overall is not good, that news could mean nothing if a pro-gun Rep is named to replace Tom Bordeaux on the Judiciary Non-civil committee.

    That committee is where many of the pro-gun bills go to die or be mutilated into meaning nothing.

    Dist 8 Incumbent won that election, so no change there.
    Dist 13 Republican won from a vacated Dem rated B, so no change expected there.
