GOP maintains majority in Wisconsin Assembly

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republicans have maintained control of the state Assembly for two more years.

The GOP went into Tuesday's elections with a 64-35 majority in the chamber, an all but insurmountable advantage. With 16 races still too close to call late Tuesday night, Republicans had a 50-33 edge. Not a single Republican incumbent had lost.

The GOP went into Election Day with an 18-15 edge in the Senate. Thirteen seats were in play, including eight Republican seats. Democrats needed to flip three of those seats to gain a 17-16 majority but as of late Tuesday not a single Republican incumbent had lost. Three GOP seats were still up for grabs, though.

Republicans have controlled both legislative houses since 2011.
