Upcoming Special Elections to Watch: Arizona and Ohio House Races

Republicans held nearly all of those seats, although the race that drew perhaps the most attention of all, the Alabama Senate race, went to Democrat Doug Jones.
Now, two more special elections are looming on the horizon, and activity from national groups is causing some to speculate whether these Republican-held House seats will remain that way.
