According to the New York Times race ratings in October 2012, seven of the 27 districts were considered to be in play. Those were the 2nd, 9th, 10th, 16th, 18th, 22nd, and 26th districts.[2]

The Center for Voting and Democracy (Fairvote) projected that Democrats would win seven districts while Republicans would win 12 seats. It did not make a projection for the remaining eight districts.[3]
