After decades of Republican dominance south of the Mason-Dixon line, this year’s midterm election cycle suggests the GOP may now be in danger of losing its firm hold on the solid South.

Even Texas appeared to be trending purple for a while this cycle, with Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke giving Sen. Ted Cruz all he could handle and more.
