The Republican midterm wave swept through state capitals across the nation Tuesday, with historic gains in state legislative races that will give the GOP a major advantage in influencing congressional races over the next 10 years through redistricting.
Mrs. McNally said the gains in Maine followed a successful Republican-backed effort this summer to repeal tax increases enacted in the previous legislative session, a campaign that helped energize party voters.
"We were confident we could get close in the House, ... then the numbers just started rolling in," Christie-Lee McNally, executive director of Maine Republican Party, said Wednesday.
