The Republican Party didn’t just win a few elections this past Tuesday, it also has prevailed in hard-fought contests throughout 2019.
In Louisiana, Republicans secured a supermajority in the State Senate and came within seven seats of doing so in the State House.

In North Carolina, the GOP took home another big win as Dan Bishop prevailed in a highly contested special election to represent North Carolina’s suburban 9th District.
