Please see the following election summary from Health and Medicine Counsel of Washington. Over the coming weeks, we will identify changes on the House and Senate Appropriations Committee and Labor, HHS, Education, and Related Agencies Subcommittees and address how this will impact grassroots advocacy in support of MLA and AAHSL's legislative priorities.

RE:  2010 CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS

On November 2nd, the United States held its biennial congressional elections.  In these elections, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 37 of the 100 seats in the Senate were up for reelection.  This election cycle garnered significant attention due to public discontent and continuing trepidation over the current state of the economy. Such economic fears have contributed to the rising momentum of the Tea Party movement, as relatively unknown candidates backed by the Tea Party emerged to defeat established incumbents across the nation.

Prior to the election, Democrats controlled the House of Representatives.  Democrats held 256 seats, while Republicans held 179 seats during the 111th Congress.  As of this memo, the Democrats now control 185 House seats, while the Republicans now control 239 House seats, with 11 contests still too close to call.  The Democrats gained 3 formerly Republican held seats, while Republicans gained 63 seats, for a net gain of 60.  This changes the control of the House of Representatives to the Republicans for the first time since 2006.

In the Senate, the Democrats held 59 seats, while the Republicans held 41 seats.  As of this memo, Democrats have maintained their majority with 51 seats, while Republicans now control 47 seats in the Senate, with 2 contests still too close to call.  This is a net gain of 6 seats for the Republicans.  Among the major winners is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).  Additionally, the Alaska senate race has been called for the Republicans, however, the actual winner is currently in doubt.

We have developed the following information to give an overview of the specific seats which will be held by new members of congress and senators in January.  This information includes lists of members and senators who are retiring, not been reelected, and have just won election for the first time, as well as information on the contests which are still too close to call.  Please note that if a specific seat is not included in this list, then the current member or senator is still in place.  We will keep you updated as additional information becomes available.
