A week ago, the ground moved.
Not literally, of course. But the Nov. 2 election was obviously a huge one for the Republican Party.
Nationwide, the GOP made impressive gains, most notably in the U.S. Congress, where Republicans gained control of the House and reduced the Democratic majority in the Senate.
Republicans also made impressive gains in state legislature races across the country – something that will give the party an edge when redistricting is done based on the 2010 Census numbers.
