Republicans risk losing a majority in the U.S. Senate

Republicans in the U.S. Senate, the upper house of Congress that holds the power to confirm judges and senior government officials, risk losing a majority in today’s election.

The 100-member Senate currently has 53 Republicans. Approximately one-third is elected every two years. This year it is about 35 seats, reports CNN.

Republicans are defending 23 seats on election day, and in some races there is a chance Democrats will “snatch” their seats, but the fight is tight, so polls hold to forecasts.

Of the 12 Democrats fighting to stay in the Senate, only one, Doug Jones from Alabama, currently the only Democratic senator from the south, could lose his seat.

Otherwise, Joe Biden and Donald Trump have already got the first results of several towns, where each has won from one of them.
