NYT: Democrats favored to take control of state capitols for first time in decade

Monday October 30, 2006

For the first time in a decade, the Democratic Party is favored to take control of a majority of state capitols, according to a front page story slated for Tuesday's New York Times, RAW STORY has learned.

"More than 6,000 state legislative seats in 46 states are on the ballot next Tuesday and, like the seismic state elections in 1994 and 1974, the cumulative impact of the outcomes could be immense, with Democrats possibly poised to take control of a majority of state capitols for the first time in a decade," Kirk Johnson reports for the Times.

"While the nation's attention has been fixed on the question of which party will control Congress, another campaign season has been unfolding in the shadows -- upstaged and overlooked, but more likely to affect the day-to-day life of voters than the big-money congressional race," the article continues.
