At Least 37 States Will Be Under Single-Party Control In 2013 — A 60-Year High
For the first time in 60 years, the state governments of at least 37 states will be under the control of a single party. That’s more than two-thirds of states, as The New York Times reports.
The shift is “raising the prospect that bold partisan agendas — on both ends of the political spectrum — will flourish over the next couple of years.” Per the Times:
Though the Nov. 6 election maintained divided government in Washington, the picture is starkly different in capitals from California to Florida: one party will hold the governor’s office and majorities in both legislative chambers in at least 37 states, the largest number in 60 years and a significant jump from even two years ago.
