Numerous State Legislative Chambers ‘In Play’ This Year

 Eighteen legislative chambers in 13 states are vulnerable to a shift of party control in the November elections, according to Tim Storey of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Twelve of those chambers are currently held by Republicans, while the other six are controlled by Democrats. In six of the chambers the majority party’s margin of control is just one or two seats. In seven chambers the margin is 3-6 seats. And in five chambers the margin is 7 seats or more.
