GOP Picks up Six Governorships

The GOP picked up at least six governorships on Tuesday night after victories in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Kansas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Victories also include Republicans Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Rick Scott in Florida. Republicans seized control of a dozen state houses, as well, including in swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania. Both those states now have two Republican state houses and Republican governors, giving the GOP a big redistricting advantage.
