IN & OUT IN DOVER  

Posted: Nov. 12, 2012

Meet the new legislature. Not the same as the old legislature.

The Democratic majority held in both chambers of the Delaware General Assembly, but not much else. Fifteen districts changed hands. That means roughly a quarter of the 62 legislative seats in Dover have new occupants.

The old Senate: 14-7 Democratic. The new Senate: 13-8 Democratic.

The old House of Representatives: 26-15 Democratic. The new House: 27-14 Democratic.
