Massachusetts votes are in, and Democrats held all nine House seats following Tuesday’s midterm election.
Republicans looked to take the majority in the House after Democrats have held it since 2018, but the GOP were unable to flip any seats in the New England state.
The closest race was fought in Massachusetts’ 9th Congressional district, where Bill Keating faced off with Republican challenger Jesse Brown.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, an incumbent candidate, secured the biggest margin of victory over her Republican challenger Donnie Palmer by landing nearly 85% of her district’s vote opposed to his 15% – a more than 69% difference in vote totals.

All nine contenders who ran in Massachusetts were incumbent candidates and will return to the Capitol for another two years.
Despite Democratic victories in Massachusetts, the New England state was not a hard fought battleground, and Republicans were not expecting to pick up any seats from the nine races there.
Republicans hold 213 seats in the House of Representatives, which means they will need to pick up at least five seats to gain the majority threshold of 218 for the 118th Congress.
