Early on Wednesday morning, the Senate election was still close in five crucial swing states, with Republicans still unable to take control of the upper house.
A Pennsylvania Senate seat was switched to Democratic control by John Fetterman’s victory over Mehmet Oz, but if Republican Adam Laxalt defeats senator Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada, his triumph might be overturned.
Before Tuesday’s elections, the Republican and Democratic caucuses were evenly divided in the Senate, with vice president Kamala Harris able to break ties when necessary.
Republicans presently hold a majority in three swing states, so if they win one more, they will have a majority.
Republican Blake Masters is trailing Democrat Mark Kelly in Arizona, although just 63% of the ballots have been counted.
Georgia’s election is too close to call, and if neither candidate receives 50% of the vote, a runoff may be held on December 6.
The incumbents have all won Ohio, New Hampshire, and Colorado’s projected competitive senate races.
With 95% of the votes counted, Republican Mike Lawler leads incumbent Sean Maloney in the well-publicized congressional election.
