SHNS Talks Republican Gains in House

Last week, State House News Service sat down with some of the members of the Republican Leadership team to discuss the Republican gains made in the House this election cycle.

As SHNS reported, "Republicans gained 16 seats last week, 12 by way of rejecting incumbent Democrats and four by winning open seats held by Democrats who opted to run for higher office or retire. All 11 GOP incumbents won reelection, and the party also held five of its own open seats in the House giving them a total of 32. In practical terms, nearly 1.3 million Massachusetts residents will represented by House Republicans on Beacon Hill in January, up from 640,000 this year."
