The GOP Great Lakes 

In the eight states along the Great Lakes (N.Y., Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota), Republicans gained four Senate seats, and 23 House seats.

But also, on the state-government level the GOP made important gains in 6 of those 8 states: In Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ohio, the GOP now controls both legislative chambers and the governorship — clutch for redistricting. In New York, Republicans won back the State Senate, limiting the Dems ability to control redistricting.
