In the Republican controlled Mississippi Senate, the GOP appears to have picked up one seat by defeating a Democratic incumbent. The new lineup is 29R-22D with one race still undecided.
In the 122 member House, 63 seats are needed to form a majority. Republicans have picked up six seats, but it is not yet clear if they will get to the eight seat gain necessary to take control from the Democrats. Our unofficial count is 58D-60R with four races too close to call.
But a conservative Mississippi blog, Y'all Politics, is claiming victory:
Based on results as we know them right now, it looks as if conservatives may have picked up 11 or 12 seats while losing 2 giving Republicans 63 or 64 seats in the state House – the first outright conservative majority in the House since Reconstruction. If these numbers hold once all of the absentees and affidavits are calculated, Mississippi will have a Republican Speaker of the House.
