(CNN) – House Democrats had a disastrous Election Night, but they have been able to stop the bleeding so far when it comes to the races that were too close to call last week.
CNN Tuesday called two more races in favor of Democratic incumbents: Rep. Gerry Connolly from Virginia's 11th Congressional District and Rep. Rick Larsen from Washington's 2nd Congressional District.
Connolly defeated challenger Keith Fimian by a margin of 981 votes while Larsen bested challenger John Koster by just under 5,500 votes.
That means the total GOP gains in the House remains at 60 seats, exactly where it stood after Election Night when 13 House seats were undecided. Now, seven House races remain up in the air and they are all ones that feature Democratic incumbents.
