There is no getting away from the fact the GOP defied history. Outside of the House, Dems did horribly in their "Blue Wave" year.

Besides losing FL (Nelson and Gillium are done), they lost IN, ND, MO and nearly lost MT.
In addition (and being overlooked by MSM), Ds barely clung to their Senate seats in OH and MI (Michigan!), both states Trump won.

Caveats, like the closeness of the TX and AZ races are not really good news for Dems and are ALL ABOUT LOCAL POLITICS....
The Texas GOP dislike Cruz (as I do) and McSallay lacked statwide appeal in AZ. Both were NeverTrump in 2016 and Deplorables have long memories. Both GOP Govs Ducey (AZ) and Abbott (TX) won reelection in landslides. Both have embraced Trump.

Remember too, AZ is McCainland.
In WI, Establishment GOPer and Jeb Bush fan Gov. Scott Walker went down. Any surprises?

Nevada is a purple state. Heller was besidged with issues for years. I was surprised he ekked out reelection in 2012.
Democrats flipped 6 State chambers total and did not flip any combos (both chambers). This leaves the GOP with majority control in most State Leg bodies and trifecta control in a plurality.

Redistricting in these states will take place in 2021.
