Arizona GOP seeks to retain control of Legislature


Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Republicans enter Tuesday's general election trying to maintain their control over both chambers of the Legislature as Democrats hope to slim the GOP's bulging majorities.

This state is using districts newly redrawn by a commission after the once-a-decade Census. The commission used criteria that included fostering competition between the two major parties.

Republicans picked up seats in both legislative chambers in 2010 and now hold two-thirds majorities - 21-9 in the Senate and 40-19 in the House. The House also has one independent.
