I looked and didn't see a thread on this, correct me if i'm wrong.

Rep. Darrell Issa to retire, handing Democrats another big pick-up opportunity in California

 

Washington (CNN) - California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa will retire at the end of his term, he announced Wednesday.

 
Issa, one of the wealthiest members of Congress and among the best-known due to his reputation as a conservative attack dog, is bowing out of what would have been one of the nation's most hotly contested congressional races.
 
"Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve. Yet with the support of my family, I have decided that I will not seek re-election in California's 49th District," Issa said in a statement Wednesday.

People forget that the house can be just as important as the Senate, and Democrats have a real chance at taking back the house.

I really doubt that, the Republicans have a lead of nearly fifty (!) seats. At worst, the Democrats might narrow the gap and put themselves in a position to take the House in 2020.

 

Perhaps we should just have a 2018 elections thread though?

yes, they may have a lead not, but every single seat out of 435 seats are up for re-election every election cycle.  If the Trump backlash is strong enough, I would say that the Democrats definitely have a chance.

There is this thread which has a lot of focus on the 2018 race for the House of Representatives:
