GOP seeks majority

Going into the election, the Democratic Party held a "fragile" 52-48 majority in the 100-member House.[3]

Republican Governor Mitch Daniels was focused on changing that, with the goal of having a Republican majority in the state house for his final two years in offices. His political action committee "Aiming Higher" had raised close to $1 million by late April 2010 to help the campaigns of Republican state house candidates.[4]

The Republican Party last held a majority in the Indiana state house in the 2005-2006 term.[4] The GOP has a 33-17 majority in the Indiana State Senate; after taking the house on November 2, it controls the governor's seat and both houses of the Indiana State Legislature.

Nationally, leading into the November 2010 election, Republicans controlled the governor's office, state House and state Senate in 9 nine states, while Democrats enjoyed what is called "total control" in 16.[5]

Democrats also target

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee has pledged to spend $20 million on state legislative elections in nine states, including Indiana, in 2010.[4]

Redistricting at stake

An April 2010 analysis in the Wall Street Journal said that what's at stake in the Indiana House elections of November 2010 is redistricting:

"In Indiana, for example, Democrats controlled redistricting after the 2000 elections and picked up three additional congressional seats over the past decade. Now, Republicans are trying to reverse those gains. If the GOP picks up just three seats in the state House, the party will control both chambers of the legislature and strengthen its hand in the redistricting process."[6]
