SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Democrats will begin their second half-century of dominating California’s Legislature on Monday, when lawmakers reconvene for the first time since last month’s election.

The Democrats will have their most lopsided advantage in the state Senate in nearly 140 years.

Democrats have held continuous control of the Senate since 1970, while giving up their Assembly majority for just two years since then.

Republicans in November lost two of their 11 senators in the 40-member Senate, leaving Democrats 75% of the seats in both legislative chambers.

It’s rare for incumbents to lose. But both of the GOP losses were of veteran lawmakers in traditionally Republican Orange County-centered districts.
