The victory now gives the Republicans control of 32 state governor's offices. Democrats will be down to 17 governors after Bevin is sworn in. There is also on independent governor, Bill Walker of Alaska.
This evening Republicans appear poised to continue its control of 69 of 99 state legislative chambers as well as complete control (all state legislative chambers and governor's office) in 24 states, including Indiana. While the Democrats were expected to have a shot at picking up the state senate in Virginia, those hopes appear to be dashed this evening with the Democrats losing a key race.
