Democrats requested recounts in two races which left open the possibility of a 50-50 legislature, however the judges overseeing the recount reaffirmed the GOP majority in the House after making a decision on 85th District.
The other recount in the 91st District is still ongoing, however the Democrats have no shot at taking the majority in the House.
Democrats still hold a slim majority in the Senate.
Republicans won the governor’s race, the state Attorney General, the state Lieutenant Governor’s race in last month’s election.
