Elections in the German state of Prussia make the Nazi Party the single largest party in the state parliament, moving from just 9 seats to 162 seats. Even with smaller fascist parties as allies, though, the Nazis control less than a majority.
Prussia makes up two-thirds of Germany, which is why many believe that whoever controls Prussia will also control Germany. The Nazis also make gains state elections in Wurttemberg, Hamburg, and Anhalt. In Bavaria they come out slightly behind the Bavarian People's Party.
Reacting to the news, Adolf Hitler says:
"Our success was not due to clever tactics, but to relentless toil. What the propaganda department achieved in a few brief weeks is unprecedented. ...
Our task is not to rest a minute, but to renew the fight for the independence of Germany."
