The Together We Elect strategy team identifies top Senate and House races that will determine which party controls Congress. We only pick races we think your support can make a real difference.
As it’s still quite early to analyze 2024, we base our current list on the Cook Political Report’s 2024 race ratings and present their list of most competitive races. The Senate is a complete defense strategy — all competitive seats are held by Democrats. The House is much more evenly split.
The map below shows key states. Light orange states have at least one key race. Darker orange indicates states with multiple House races or a Senate race. Check out the tables below the map for details about each race.
