Multiple outlets confirmed Saturday night that the Republican Party will NOT take control of the Senate. Democrats have clinched at least 50 seats with Vice President Kamala Harris casting a tie-breaking vote if needed.
From Fox News:
Democrats will have continued control of the Senate, the Fox News Decision Desk can project.
Democrats will maintain power in the Senate thanks to Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto being declared the winner in Nevada on Saturday night in her race against Republican challenger Adam Laxalt.
Democrats now hold 50 seats compared to the 49 seats held by Republicans with one seat yet to be decided in Georgia where a runoff election will be held between Republican Herschel Walker and Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock on December 6th.
Even if Walker were to win in Georgia, Democrats would still have control with Vice President Kamala Harris’s tie-breaking vote.
