US Democrats, Seeking Gains In State Governments, Lose Ground Instead

US Election Outcomes 2020: An individual speaks as labor union activists rally at a park close to White Home

Democrats entered the 2020 US elections seeking to roll again a lot of the commanding presence Republicans had in state governments, however as an alternative wound up dropping floor as votes have been counted on Wednesday.

Republicans gained majorities in each chambers of the New Hampshire State Home and took again the Montana governor’s mansion, which had been held by a retiring Democrat.

Greg Gianforte’s win in Montana over Democrat Mike Cooney gave Republicans 27 of the nation‘s 50 governorships.

Republicans will wind up with no less than the 59 state legislative chambers they held going into Election Day, however the remaining tally relies on Arizona the place the outcomes are nonetheless incomplete, the Nationwide Convention of State Legislatures (NCSL) mentioned.

Democrats, who started with solely 39 chambers, jacked up their spending this 12 months on campaigns in eight states, together with Arizona, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Texas.

In 35 states, the prize that comes with controlling legislatures is the power to design congressional districts for partisan benefit, as Republicans did earlier than 2012 after they widened their majority within the US Home of Representatives. Listed below are this 12 months‘s outcomes for states whose lawmakers draw congressional boundaries, in addition to the outcomes of this 12 months‘s 11 gubernatorial contests, primarily based on knowledge from the NCSL:
