While Lori Loureiro Trahan maintained his place in the 3rd district of Massachusetts, where he had no opponent, the Portuguese descendant Jim Costa obtained a very expressive majority in the 16th district of California, winning 60.7% of the votes already counted.

According to the New York Times figures, 20% of the ballot papers are still to be counted in this district, but it is no longer possible for the Republican candidate, Kevin Cookingham, to recover the handicap for the Portuguese descendant.

The same is true in the 22nd district of California, where Devin Nunes was declared the winner against Democrat Phil Arballo.

Here, the Portuguese descendant close to Donald , who led the House of Representatives intelligence committee in the previous legislature, won with 53.5% of the votes, when 86% of the ballots are counted. It may be the shortest margin of victory for Nunes since he arrived at the congress in 2003, continuing the trend that registered in 2018.

In doubt is the race in the 21st district of California, in which the Portuguese-American David Valadão tries to recover the place he lost to the democrat TJ Cox in 2018. At this moment, with 71% of the votes counted, Valadão leads with 51.4% , a difference that in absolute terms is around three thousand votes.

However, it is possible that this race will not be certified for some time, since in 2018 the difference between them was only a few hundred and it took weeks to count all the bulletins.

In Virginia, Republican Nick Freitas’s attempt to defeat the incumbent Abigail Spanberger, in the 7th congressional district, is also very close.

The Portuguese descendant, who is a strong supporter of Donald Trump, leads the accounts at this time, with 50.1% against 49.9%. The difference between the two is only 924 votes and 14% of the ballots remain to be counted.

In Virginia, votes that arrive by post by noon on November 6th will be counted, which may drag the decision on this seat at the congress.

In total accounting, Democrats are expected to retain control of the House of Representatives, having been declared winners in 204 districts against 188 for Republicans. The result remains to be declared in 43 districts.
