Republican Gains Extend to Governors' Races

Republican gains in Congress were being matched in statehouses Tuesday as the GOP gained governorship in Maryland, Massachusetts, Illinois and Arkansas.

The only Democratic gain by 2 a.m. ET was in Pennsylvania, where first-time candidate To Wolf ousted Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.
