Review-Journal:

Democrats took control of the state Senate for the first time since 1991 as two Clark County Republican incumbents, Bob Beers and Joe Heck, succumbed to first-time candidates whose party boosted them with a massive and largely negative independent advertising campaign.

In the Democrat-controlled Assembly, the party lost one seat and picked up two, giving Speaker Barbara Buckley a two-thirds majority in the lower house.

Steven Horsford becomes the first African American majority leader in the Senate.
