Georgia will have a second round on Dec. 6.



Published by

The dispute for control of the Senate continues. Results give the Republican Party one more senator than the Democratic Party. Right now, the GOP would have 49 senators to the Democrats' 48.

In Nevada, Republican candidate Adam Laxalt lost the seat from incumbent Senator Catherine Cortez Masto of the Democratic Party. With 98% of the vote counted, Laxalt would obtain 48% of support to Cortez Masto's 48.9%.

With 99% of the vote completed in Arizona, Democratic challenger Mark Kelly would retain his Senate seat (51.4%) and defeat Republican candidate Blake Masters (46.5%).
