There is still suspense over who will control of the US Senate as it is also unknown which party will hold the majority in the House of Representatives.
Democrats could seal US Senate majority
Democrats are one seat away from majority control of the US Senate next year, as vote-counting in deeply divided Nevada continues following Tuesday’s midterm elections and campaigning kicked off for a December 6 runoff in Georgia.
If incumbent Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto manages to fend off Republican Adam Laxalt in Nevada, her party would then control 50 of the Senate’s 100 seats.
A Democratic victory in Georgia next month would then give the party outright majority control of a 51-49 Senate.
A Democratic loss in Georgia and a win in Nevada would still put Democrats in charge of a 50-50 Senate, as Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris can break tie votes.
