How big is THE wave? It looks like the Republicans can now actually win one or both of the Houses of the Alabama legislature. Alabama is now controlled by Democrats with a 5 seat advantage in her Senate and a 15 seat advantage in its lower chamber,yet a new report from the National Conference of State Legislatures indicates both of those margins are about to vanish.
Observers are also looking for control to change hands in the New Hampshire and New York State Senates. Given the general conditions in New York where the Census numbers will reduce the number of Congressional seats by at least two and Democrats could lose eleven seats, the one third GOP share of the redistricting process this win would provide is very valuable.
In Indiana,Ohio,and Pennsylvania,Republicans are on their way to taking control of the House and in Wisconsin,led by Ron Johnson big victory over Russ Feingold,both chambers plus the Governor’s seat are expected to be in GOP control next January.
In Ohio the stars seem to be aligning for a redistricting done solely by Republicans as Democrats sit by and wait to see how badly they have fared.
