Democrats retain control of U.S. Senate after expected Nevada win US News

Democrats are expected to retain control of the U.S. Senate after a victory in Nevada, according to U.S. media reports.

Incumbent Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto looks set to win by a narrow margin over her Republican rival, former state attorney general Adam Laxart.

It came a day after Democrat Mark Kelly’s victory in Arizona meant Democrats had 50 seats in the Senate.

Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris could break ties in the 100-member House, meaning the party could win for President Joe Biden.

The final state to decide is Georgia, where Democratic Sen. Rafael Warnock will run off against Republican Herschel Walker on Dec. 6.
