The GOP went into Election Day with an 18-15 advantage in the Senate. Thirteen seats were in play, including eight Republican seats. Democrats needed to hold their five seats and flip three GOP seats to win a 17-16 majority.

But Republicans held their eight seats and Andre Jacque defeated Democratic incumbent Caleb Frostman on Tuesday night to ensure the GOP maintains at least an 18-15 advantage.

Republicans held their majority in the Assembly as well. The GOP has controlled both houses of the Legislature since 2011.
