Republicans retained control of the General Assembly after Tuesday's election, and with the win, the GOP will once again control how the state's political boundaries are drawn.

North Carolina Republicans held both General Assembly chambers despite a massive effort to flip them. 

Democrats went on a multimillion-dollar spending push to win several additional seats, but the plan didn't pan out for them.

With this win for the Republican party, they have extended control for another two years. 

This will allow them to redraw district maps for the next decade based on new census figures. Republicans controlled the redistricting in the 2010s. These maps were frequently in court after Democrats and voting rights advocates filed lawsuits.

Many districts had to be redrawn over the years after federal judges found the maps to be gerrymandered.
