Arizona

6 seats: 5R, 1D    R 52

Republicans maintained their 5-1 edge in seats in 1996 and 1998, but their projected performance dropped in several districts in 1996 -- in part due to the national trend of Democratic improvement in districts with large Latino populations. As predicted in our 1997 report, elections as a result grew more competitive in 1998. Three Republican seats could be vulnerable in 2000.
