RALEIGH – Republicans will extend their control of the General Assembly for another two years.

Unofficial results show the party will maintain majorities in both chambers following a round of redistricting in 2019.

They will also be in charge of drawing lines in 2021, when the state is likely to add another Congressional seat.

“For the sixth consecutive election, voters made a clear choice in support of the Republican platform of low taxes, expanded school choice, and large investments in education and teacher pay. The Senate Republican majority will continue to deliver on those promises,” said Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Eden).
