Tennessee Republicans will control the legislature for the first time since Reconstruction. In perhaps the biggest surprise of the night in legislative voting, they have taken the state House with a 50-49 majority.

It is the GOP's first House majority since 1971, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports.

They also broke a tie in the state Senate, emerging with a 19-14 majority.
