We participated in an election update conference call this morning with Dan Clinton, Strategas’ Head of Political Research, and David Wasserman, the House Editor for The Cook Political Report. David is known as a leading expert on analyzing U.S. House Races and he will be making all House race calls for NBC on election night.
