Make Up of Missouri General Assembly Little Changed by Election

Mo Capitol River Side

Tuesday's election results made little, if any, changes to the make-up of the Missouri General Assembly. Republicans retained their supermajority status in both the Missouri House (114-47) and the Missouri Senate (24-10). In addition, Republicans held on to their control of the statewide elected offices, save the Auditor's office, which Nicole Galloway will retain after her failed bid for governor. 

Nationally, the election results remain an open question. Democrats will retain control of the U.S. House, despite Republicans flipping several seats there. Control of the U.S. Senate is undecided, however, with both parties currently holding 48 seats with two races undecided (Alaska and North Carolina) and two races in Georgia likely headed for a January runoff. Clouded by still uncounted absentee and mail-in ballots, the results of races in Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina remain unknown as of this writing.
