figured I'd take a stab

A) appears to be correct SVA agrees
B) Democratic party is a singular so were is incorrect
C) Changes the meaning completely from the democrats dominating to the houses dominating the democrats
D) same as C
E) Really confusing, makes it seem like the time period was doing the dominating. I assume it has an adverb modifier issue

so A for me
