The Republican Party’s 50-State Solution

We’ve been seeing this story for some time …

“Seven years ago, Democrats had a commanding lead in state legislatures, controlling both legislative chambers in 27 states, nearly double the 14 controlled by Republicans. They held 4082 state senate and house seats, compared to the Republicans’ 3223.

“Sweeping Republican victories at the state level in 2010 and 2014 transformed the political landscape. By 2015, there were Republican majorities in 70 percent — 68 of 98 — of the nation’s partisan state houses and senates, the highest number in the party’s history.”
