Of the 35 new county commissioners, Democrats lost 10 seats they had held and gained only one. Republicans also lost a seat to an unaffiliated candidate.
The nationalization of the election that strongly affected congressional elections (Republicans took record number of 63 seats) did not stop with federal officeholders. Along with winning two new congressional seats, Colorado Republicans picked up six State House seats (taking control) and one in the State Senate. Republicans also defeated two Democratic incumbent statewide constitutional officeholders – State Treasurer and Secretary of the State.
