Memo on Tables 1, 2, and 3 on the 2006 Midterm Elections Table 1 shows a preliminary breakdown of party shares of the regional delegation in the House and Senate for the 110 th Congress. To simplify these results I compare the breakdown in the South (the eleven states of the Old Confederacy) and the remaining 39 states. The Democrats made very modest gains in the South, picking up a Senate seat in Virginia, but they picked up five Senate seats outside the South, gaining seats in Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Thus, the gap between the South and the rest of the country increased. The Democrats made modest gains in the South in House races as well, with preliminary results suggesting they increased their share from 37 percent to 39 percent. Preliminary results suggest that outside the South the Democrats increased their share of the House seats from 51 percent to 59 percent. Once again, regional differences between the South and the states outside the South increased.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
