Obama As Nixon

Just putting the GOP sweep of state legislatures in perspective.
Republicans picked up 680 seats in state legislatures, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures -- the most in the modern era. To put that number in perspective: In the 1994 GOP wave, Republicans picked up 472 seats. The previous record was in the post-Watergate election of 1974, when Democrats picked up 628 seats.
Given the Watergate reference, I'm surprised WaPo hasn't mentioned this.
