INTERACTIVE GRAPHIC: The Big Switch

November 4, 2010 | 8:29 p.m. CDT
It’s the biggest switch in more than 60 years. Tuesday night, the Republican Party gained 64 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, bringing its total to 243 members (including Thursday’s projections) and giving them a majority in the House. The last time the party compositition of the House shifted so drastically was in the 1948 national election, and the last time the Republican Party had this many members in the House was after the 1946 election.

Missouri was part of this shift, with six of its nine congressional districts voting Republican, one of which voted Democrat in 2008.
