GOP Senate takeover falls short
At the beginning of the night, Republicans needed a net pick-up of at least four seats to turn a 53-47 deficit in the upper chamber of Congress into a majority of 51 seats or more.
As of the latest posting of this article, however, the tally actually reflects a net swing of 2 votes in the Democrats’ favor with only a few close races yet to be decided. Yet even if Republicans won all the remaining close races still being totaled late into the night, the GOP would still fall short of gaining enough seats for a majority.
