Darrell McGraw, the Democratic attorney general of West Virginia, won a fifth term in a squeaker, taking 50.3 percent of the vote.
That was the closest race among a dozen state attorneys general contests. Five other incumbents won reelection.
In fact, no offices changed party hands. In Delaware, Democrat Matthew Denn held the position being vacated by Beau Biden, son of the vice president-elect.
Ohio Democrat Richard Cordray will fill out the term of Marc Dann, who stepped down following a sex scandal.
Although Republican state Sen. Mike Gibbons held the lead in the race to replace outgoing Missouri AG Jay Nixon earlier in the night, he ultimately lost to Democrat Chris Koster. In Indiana, Republican Greg Zoeller narrowly held the office currently held by Steve Carter.
