The current pro-Democratic — or, more accurately, anti-Trump — environment helps on that front in two ways.It convinces top-tier Democratic recruits that 2018 might be the year for them to run for Congress. And it serves as the tipping point for Republicans teetering on the edge of retirement.Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s retirement in Florida is one example; she leaves behind an open seat race where Democrats are favored.The critical question, of course, is what the political environment looks like next November.And, as Gonzales and Cook note, that’s impossible to say today. But, as Gonzales rightly adds:“Time should not be an excuse to ignore the fact that history and the current political dynamic favors Democrats and are good reasons to watch the fight for the House.”He’s 100% right. The wave looks to be forming.Could it fizzle out before it ever comes close to swamping Republicans?Of course!But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep a very close eye on it.We should.
