Going into the Nov. 8 election, Republicans controlled both chambers of the legislature in 30 states, while Democrats controlled both chambers in 12, and 7 statehouses were split between the two parties. (Nebraska’s Legislature is technically nonpartisan.) Democrats scored one major victory on Election Day with both chambers in Nevada flipping from Republican to Democratic control. Legislatures in two states, New Mexico and Washington, also shifted from split to Democratic control. But Connecticut’s General Assembly switched from Democratic to split control, and three other state legislatures went from split to Republican control. Those changes leave 32 legislatures in Republican control, 14 controlled by Democrats and three split between the two parties.
