Senate control will now depend on conflicts in Nevada and Georgia
Reuters – Democrat Mark Kelly defeated Republican Blake Masters on Friday to win a seat in the US Senate in Arizona, a race that left Democrats one seat in the battle for control of the House of Representatives with two other elections.
The victory of Kelly, a former astronaut, whose wife, Gabe Giffords, survived an assassination attempt when she was an American congresswoman, meant that Democrats were tied 49-49 in the Senate race.
Control of the Senate will now depend on the conflicts in Nevada and Georgia. Biden’s party avoided historical trends by limiting its losses in Tuesday’s midterm elections, shocking Republicans who had expected big gains.
Democrats needed an extra seat to control, where Vice President Kamala Harris could cast a tie-breaking vote.
As for the House, Republicans have so far won at least 211 of the 218 seats they need to win a majority, while Democrats have won 199. Many of the races with no winners yet are in Arizona, California and Washington.
