DENVER — Democrats were set to take an unprecedented level of control over the Colorado House of Representatives after flipping five additional seats, unofficial election results show.
The House's current 41-24 Democrat-Republican member split was expected to increase to 46-19 Democratic dominance. Preliminary election results show Democratic candidates leading in 46 districts and Republicans leading in 19, according to the Secretary of State’s Office as of 5 p.m. Wednesday.
If the election results remain as they are, that gives Democrats a more than two-thirds majority in the House — among the biggest advantages House Democrats have had in Colorado history.
State Senate Democrats also appeared to have taken two seats from incumbent Republicans and were on the verge of expanding their caucus to within a vote of a veto-proof majority. Going into Tuesday's election, Democrats held a 21-14 advantage.
