Former state Reps. lose bids to return to their districts

Three Republicans who used to be state representatives and were looking to make a comeback in their old districts were unable to unseat the Democratic incumbents. In the 2nd District Dan Carter lost to Raghib-Allie Brennan, in the 64th Brian Ohler was edged out by Maria Horn and in the 135th John Shaban lost to Anne Hughes.  Horn will serve a second term.  She says the door-knocking and personal events that drove the campaign in 2018 were replaced by phone and text banks, and many Zoom calls this year.  There is still some Absentee Ballot counting to be done, but it appears Democrats claim majorities of at least 98 to 53 in the state House and 24 to 12 in state Senate, up from a 91-60 split and 22-14 division.
