They gained even more ground in Tuesday’s elections, picking up at least three congressional seats while votes continue to be counted in two other tight races… The party also secured a supermajority in one, and possibly both, chambers in the Legislature.” Republican leaders should look at California and shudder. The two-party system has collapsed.”
