While Republicans are expected to make extraordinary gains in today’s elections, the most radical Democrat members of Congress – notably a House caucus founded as an arm of a Marxist socialist organization – are expected to emerge mostly unscathed.

One member, Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kirkpatrick, D-Mich., already lost her primary. According to predictions by the Cook Political Report, only one Progressive Caucus member, Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy. D-Ohio, is predicted to lose. The races for three caucus members – Reps. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., Phil Hare, D-Ill., and John H. Hall, D-N.Y. – are considered toss ups.

The seats of five other Caucus members are considered in play but are leaning Democratic: Reps. Loretta Sanchez, D- Calif., David Loebsack, D-Iowa, Chellie Pingree D-Maine, Maurice Hinchey, D-N.Y., and Barney Frank, D-Mass. Others are in safe districts.
