Road to Majority – Who will control the Michigan Legislature?

Currently, Michigan House Republicans hold 63 of 110 House seats. Based on my analysis of the race for the majority in the House, the Democratic and Republican caucuses each start tonight with about 47 safe seats, barring something completely unforeseen. That means the road to control of the Michigan House runs through 16 seats, which are displayed in the table below in no particular order.
