Legislative Elections: Only A Few Races Appear Competitive As GOP Looks To Bolster Sizeable Majorities

All signs point to continued Republican dominance in the House and Senate this election cycle, the second since the majority took advantage of Apportionment Board control to craft a legislative map that's overwhelmingly favorable to GOP candidates.

Democrats meanwhile are hoping that President Barack Obama's sagging approval ratings and Ed FitzGerald's quixotic campaign against Gov. John Kasich won't swamp their legislative candidates in a tide of voter apathy.
