At the time of this writ­ing, Re­pub­lic­ans have picked up nine seats in the House, push­ing them to a mus­cu­lar 243-seat ma­jor­ity.

For House Speak­er John Boehner, that means the bar is set high for le­gis­lat­ive ac­com­plish­ments in the next two years. For the na­tion­al polit­ic­al land­scape, that means a lot of red. Here’s the lower cham­ber of the 114th Con­gress, in vivid col­or.

A num­ber of races re­main un­de­cided, and the col­ors for these dis­tricts on the map were de­term­ined us­ing the ma­jor­ity vote there as it stood at 11 a.m. on Thursday. We’ll up­date the map as more res­ults come in.
