Dems increase control of state legislatures

Speaking of redistricting …


Democratic statehouse victories paralleled the party’s coup in the U.S. House. Democrats now will control both legislative chambers in 23 states, more than they have held since 1994, up from 19 currently. Republicans will control both chambers in 16 state legislatures, down from 20 currently. Ten statehouses will be split between the parties, including dead-even ties in the Montana Senate and Oklahoma Senate, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Let’s begin watching redistricting battles. Remember, the Supreme Court in July ruled states can redistrict whenever they damn well please.
