When lawmakers convene in January, Republicans will be in control of both chambers of the Legislature for the first time since Oklahoma became a state in 1908. In the wake of the Nov. 4 elections, the GOP enjoys a 26-22 advantage in the 48-member Senate and 61-40 edge in the 101-member House.

The Senate had been evenly divided, but the Republicans picked up two seats in last week’s elections. The GOP advantage in the House was 57-44 last year, but the party added four seats to their majority.
