The blue wave that swept over Colorado's federal races and other key contests during the November 3 election extended to the battle for state Senate and House seats.

Going into the balloting, Democrats maintained a 41-24 advantage in the Colorado House, and that appears to be holding based on the latest results from the Colorado Secretary of State's Office, updated at 4:30 a.m. November 4; they're still considered unofficial, but the vast majority of votes have been counted. The closest competition in that chamber involves Representative Brianna Titone, a Democrat targeted by multiple transphobic attacks during the campaign season. However, she still holds more than a 3 percent lead over her closest challenger, Republican Vicki Pyne.

The Dems' Senate advantage was narrower, 19-16. But it's grown by at least one, thanks to Chris Kolker's victory over Suzanne Staiert in District 27. Moreover, the Dems could conceivably add another seat in District 25, where incumbent Republican Kevin Priola's lead over rival Paula Dickerson is under 1 percent.

Most other races weren't nearly that close. A number of prominent legislators, including representatives Leslie Herod and Dylan Roberts, ran unopposed, while others triumphed with ease; rep Edie Hooton collected 87.10 percent of the vote in District 10.

The bottom line: Democrats will continue to be in charge of Colorado during the challenging period to come.
