Not only did the Republicans achieve majorities in both the Senate and the Assembly, they swept all six constitutional offices, which has not occurred since 1929. A surprise turn of events was turning Congressional District 4 red with the election of Cresent Hardy to the US House of Representatives, and holding both Congressional District 1 and 2 for the Republicans.
