Isn't the seat up for election in 2 years? If I am a betting man, that seat will go back to the GOP. It shouldn't be too hard, but the GOP loves to have their "hold my beer" moments.
And Repubs should actually gain seats in the Senate in 2018 (at one point, could have been a threat for 60, but safe to say with Trump they won't get near that). Don't know if the Repubs will be able to keep the House, probably but losing even a handful of seats would be enough to completely stall them like happens now in the Senate.
By the way, what the hell is up with election cycles that Dems get close to 60 seats back in 2008, and now Repubs could come close 10 years later? Dems are defending 26(?) seats, including 2 independents, to 7....and predictions Repubs could gain 10 seats. But I bet because of Trump, and the dismal Congressional performance, Repubs might be lucky to pick-up even 1 or 2 seats.
