Four more Republican-held House seats are joining The Cook Political Report’s list of “toss-up” races, the election handicapper announced Wednesday.

The latest race-rating movements are welcome news for Democrats, who are working to stage a comeback in dozens of GOP-held congressional districts in a bid to retake the House.

But Cook’s changes weren’t all bad news for Republicans. Florida’s 26th District, currently represented by Rep.
