Analysis by Phillip Bump, The Washington Post

"To the frustration of people who enjoy neatness, considering one election in relation to another is never as clean as one might like. We tend to think of elections as broad indicators of how the electorate is moving nationally, but the electorate, always unwilling to conform to predicted boundaries, tends to swirl into eddies and reverse direction in ways that blur neatly drawn lines.

Democrats projected to win control of House, but Senate remains in GOP hands

By Philip Rucker, Matt Viser, Anne Gearan and David A. Fahrenthold

The Washington Post

"The most expensive midterm elections in modern times underscored the nation’s deep polarization, but fell short of delivering a sweeping repudiation of Trump. Democrats claimed control of the House late Tuesday and flipped at least seven governorships, but Republicans were poised to expand their majority in the Senate, delivering a split verdict in the first national referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency."

WV Legislative Links:

The button below links you to a site which helps detail the facts of each bill in the West Virginia Legislature and who supports what. These links are updated daily when the Legislature is in session. The  BCDA Facebook page is also a good place for conversation about these issues.

Obviously, not being updated, as the Legislature is not in session.

But check here when they are!!
