Business Report 7/29/16: Battle for Congress

Business Report 7/29/16

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - No one seems to expect Republican to lose the House. To retake the Senate, Democrats need four or five seats. Republicans are defending 24 and seem vulnerable in five, maybe six.

In Florida, Marco Rubio faces a Republican primary challenger with views closer to Trump's, while two Democratic congressmen are running. In New Hampshire, it's a first-term GOP incumbent versus the sitting Democratic governor.

There are four other close races in Rust Belt.

In Wisconsin, the sitting Republican and the Democrat he unseated, have a rematch.

In Ohio, the Dem challenger is a former Congressman and governor.

In Illinois, Tammy Duckworth challenges a GOP first-termer who does NOT back Trump.

In Pennsylvania, a Republican first-termer faces a Democrat who's a trade protectionist.
