J Street endorsed
58 60 candidates. We’re assembling the data on their results.
Here are the totals:
House: 44-11 with two races not yet called (Connolly and Grijalva).
However, that total for the House is a bit misleading, as many of the House races were little to no contest (at least one endorsee, Michael Capuano of Massachusetts, ran uncontested). Here’s our current count of J Street endorsees and whether they faced a significant GOP challenge (either lost, or won by less than 10 percent):
34 of 44 victors won by more than 10%.
26 endorsees faced a significant Republican challenge, and the ratio there was 10 victories to 14 losses, in races where a Democrat lost or won by less than 10%, with two races not yet decided (Connolly and Grijalva).
We’ll be updating over the course of the day with more detail on these numbers.
Margins of Victory: 34 of 44 victories were by more than 10% — but by quite a lot more. Only 10 of the 34 had margins of less than 20%. The average margin of victory for these 34 candidates was 35.5%. The average margin for the 26 races in which an endorsee faced a significant Republican challenge was -3.65.
UPDATE 1:38PM: All numbers slightly adjusted, due to an error in the total number of endorsees. J Street lists 60 candidates it endorsed, and not the 58 that have been reported elsewhere.
