The power of both the Executive Branch and all 100 Seats for the House of Delegates were up for grabs in yesterday’s election in Virginia. After a very late night, the numbers indicate that Republicans swept the top of the ticket, which hasn’t been done since 2009, and that the House has flipped to a razor-thin republican lead.
Going into the evening, Democrats held a 55 to 45 majority in the House of Delegates. Based on last night’s election Republicans picked up 7 seats, flipping the House to a 52-48 Republican-held Majority.
