Conservative Republicans
Continue Sweep

Scott Bundgaard - Majority Leader
Steve Pierce - Majority Whip

Arizona House Leadership:
Kirk Adams - Speaker
Andy Tobin - Majority Leader
Debbie Lesko - Majority Whip

Republicans Score HUGE Gains across America in State Legislatures

Based on unofficial, preliminary returns, legislative chambers that have switched so far are:

§ Alabama House and Senate
§ Arizona House & Senate - Veto Proof
§ Colorado House
§ Indiana House
§ Iowa House
§ Maine House and Senate
§ Michigan House
§ Minnesota House and Senate
§ Montana House
§ New Hampshire House and Senate
§ New York Senate
§ North Carolina House and Senate
§ Ohio House
§ Oregon Tied in both Senate and House
§ Pennsylvania House
§ Washington Senate
§ Wisconsin Assembly and Senate

§ Republicans gained at least 680 State Legislature seats on Tuesday, the largest gain by either party since 1966, surpassing Democratic gains in the post-Watergate election of 1974.

§ The North Carolina Senate is now in Republican control for the first time since 1870.

§ The Minnesota Senate, which held nonpartisan elections until 1974, is under Republican control for the first time.

§ The Alabama legislature is under Republican control for the first time since Reconstruction.

The Texas and Tennessee Houses went from virtually tied to massive Republican gains. The gains in Texas were so big that the Republicans no longer need the Democrats to get state constitutional amendments out of the state legislature.

These gains go all the way down to the municipal level across the nation. That did not happen even in 1994.

This was a tsunami of Epic Proportions!  Now the work begins!
