Virginia 8th Senate

40/40

Jeff L. McWaters (R): 8,051 votes (78.59%)
William W. "Bill" Fleming (D): 2,184 votes (21.31%)
Write-in: 9 votes (0.08%)

Dave W. Marsden (D): 11,943 votes (50.62%)
Steve M. Hunt (R): 11,626 votes (49.28%)

Tennessee 83rd House

With absentees, early and 20 of the 20 precincts reporting:

Mark White (R): 3236 (67.44%)
Guthrie Castle (D): 1452 (30.26%)
John Andreuccetti (I): 110 (2.29%)

So, I think than the house is 50R-48D-1 expelled Republican who gave the control of the house to the Democrats in exchange of him being elected President of the House.
No, I think the House is now back to 49R, 49D, 1 Carter County Republican (Kent Williams).  If it was 50-48-1, the Republicans would replace Williams with the Speaker they wanted.  It must have been a Republican vacancy that Mark White was elected to fill.

Wikipedia says a special election in late 2009 resulted in a Republican winning a Democratic-held seat. So it is 50-48-1.

Well, I guess the Speaker rules with an iron fist and can keep a new vote for Speaker off the agenda, so Williams stays in office until he is voted out by a stronger Republican majority in January, 2011.

Hey, there was one tonight. Continuing Kentucky's trend of bizarre special election results, a Democrat picked up the House seat of a Republican who won a special Senate election a month or two back.

http://www.elect.ky.gov/NR/exeres/CBFBFF75-CCC3-40E5-A221-0884DFEEB300.htm

Terry Mills (D) - 3,001 (54%)
Leo Johnson (R) - 2,518 (46%)



I wonder if Terry Mills is the former Kentucky Wildcat basketball star with the same name?

The two articles about the result that I found describe him as a 59-year-old retired social security administration employee.
That would be the Terry Mills who played for Adolph Rupp.  I graduated in 1970, two years ahead of him, so it all fits together.  Gee, I always thought he was a Republican.  I wonder when he went south?

Well, that would explain his winning the seat.  Any former Wildcat basketball player running for office in the state is bound to have an edge.

So if the Republican scored an upset in MS SD-36 today, it would tie that chamber?  I understand it is most unlikely to happen.

Democratic favorite is John Laird, former Assemblyman and Mayor of Santa Cruz. He's gay.

That would be pretty awesome to have two openly gay Lt. Governors elected this year--him and Richard Tisei in Mass.
Is it John Laird who is gay, or Lt Gov Maldanado, or both?

Probably when Tom Osborne ran for Congress from Nebraska CD-3 in 2004.  His 2002 and 2000 races were the only two other instances that I can think of.

The thing is, he is pretty much to a living "saint" in Nebraska, added to the reality that CD-3 is probably 70% Republican, so it is a unique set of circumstances.

December 14 for HD-44 (East of San Antonio) to replace Edmund Kuempel who died just after the election.

John Kuempel, the late Edmund Kuempel's son, was elected with 65.6% of the vote.  A Democrat managed a surprising 4th in the race.

John Kuempel REP              7,245 65.69%
Gary W. Inmon REP             1,123 10.18%
Myrna McLeroy REP             1,022  9.26%
Cheryl Dees Patterson DEM       689  6.24%
Robin R. Walker REP             544  4.93%
Daniel Rodriguez Andrade DEM    119  1.07%
Ron Avery    REP                 79  0.71%
Chris Burchell REP               73  0.66%
Jim Fish REP                     73  0.66%
Tony Gergely LIB                 62  0.56%

What a nice tribute to his Dad.  

This win gives the Republicans a 101 to 49 edge in the Texas State House.

We nominated the liberal, who is also kind of cute over the pro-life Moderate Hero in 5B. Good.

She's also only 25. The vacating incumbent held the seat for a decade and yet he's only 35 now. Weird district to be electing youngs. It's not a youthful place at all.
She is kind of cute indeed, if the picture is an accurate reflection of reality.  When does this special election take place?

Special election in Minnesota House, 5B. Mark Dayton has appointed incumbent Tony Sertich, former Majority Leader and who was in line to become Speaker to chair the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (Yes the acronym for that is IRRRB, awesome.) Sertich was mentioned as a possible challenger to Cravaack so this probably takes him out of the running. Primary is Feb 1st, general is Feb 15th.

Dayton won the seat 63-29, so obviously this one probably isn't going to be competitive, but the DFL primary should be interesting. Filing deadline has just passed, there are four Democrats running, one IP and one Republican (the same guy who lost to Sertich in November and got 33%.)

Carly Melin doesn't look quite as cute in this article:

So, what's the House composition now? 127D: 32R: 1 Vacant?
No, from the cited article, it's pretty clear that the Democrat gets to keep the seat until this is finally resolved:  "Mr. Alicea will continue to represent the district as a holdover."  So, 128D, 32R, for now.

Who knows, maybe the committee will decide he just keeps the seat as in a boxing championship where in a draw, the incumbent retains the title.

This leaves the Democrats holding both houses in Arkansas, the State Senate in Virginia, the State House in Kentucky and Mississippi.  All else is Republican in Dixie.

Also, here is the nation-wide breakout:
26 Republican-controlled Legislatures
15 Democratic-controlled Legislatures
8 Split Legislatures
1 Officially non-partisan (Nebraska)
50 Total

Wikipedia has a listing for special state legislative elections.  Someone seems to keep it fairly up to date, though the individual links to the actual races do not necessarily cover that special election.

http://www.ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/State_legislative_special_elections,_2011 

It looks like Tuesday is a busy day for filling vacancies in Connecticut.  I gather the vacancies were mostly a result of the new governor appointing members of the legislature to positions in his administration.  His timing of announcing proposed tax increases might be interesting to see for an impact on the results.

Democrats retained Missouri State Senate District 9:

State Senator - District 9    Precincts Reporting 64 of 64
   Curls, Shalonn (Kiki)  DEM 11,594  83.5% 
   Wood, Nola  REP 2,298  16.5% 
Total Votes   13,892 

This makes the Missouri State Senate 26 R, 8 D.

In Connecticut, I believe the line-up is as follows:
State Senate:  22 D, 14R
House:  99R, 52D.
