(Worthy News) - Both chambers of the U.S. Congress are projected to remain under Republican control when they convene on Jan. 3, with voters on Tuesday dashing Democrats' hopes of taking over the Senate while keeping the House of Representatives in Republican hands.
A few Senate races were still undecided, but projections by major media organizations indicated that Democrats no longer had a probable path toward capturing control of the 100-seat Senate.
So far, Democrats had succeeded in gaining only one seat from Republicans, in Illinois, where U.S. Representative Tammy Duckworth defeated Senator Mark Kirk. Democrats needed to pick up a net five seats to take Senate control. [ Source ]
