The 3rd CD member-elect is just the sixth candidate to win without the support of a majority of voters in the state out of more than 250 U.S. House elections since 1940.
The 2018 cycle is the first time since statehood in which two political parties each flipped more than one congressional seat.
Only the Election of 1912 saw Republicans win as low a percentage of seats to the chamber since the founding of the party in the mid-1850s.
The winning margins between the two parties in races for governor and U.S. Senate in 2018 may be the largest with a split ticket outcome in state history.
