The November 2010 mid-term congressional elections resulted in historic Republican gains in the U.S. House of Representatives and significant gains in the U.S. Senate. In the 112th Congress, Republicans will hold a 242 to 193 margin over the Democrats, while in the Senate, Democrats will retain a 53 to 47 majority. Likewise, Republicans gained governorships across the country – including those in Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming. Like the federal contests, most of the state campaigns focused on the weak economy, unemployment and state budget troubles.
