|Come January, more than two-thirds of the states will be under single-party control, raising the prospect that bold partisan agendas -- on both ends of the political spectrum -- will flourish over the next couple of years. Twenty-four states will be controlled by Republicans, including Alaska and Wisconsin, where the party took the State Senate, and North Carolina, where the governorship changed hands. At least 13 states will be Democratic, including Colorado, Minnesota and Oregon, where control of the legislatures shifted, and California, where the already dominant Democrats gained a supermajority in both chambers.|
