Democrats keep Senate majority as GOP push falters in Nevada

Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., speaks during a gospel breakfast with former President Bill Clinton, Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022, in Las Vegas. Masto is running against Republican candidate Adam Laxalt.

WASHINGTON — Democrats will keep control of the Senate, repelling Republican efforts to retake the chamber and making it harder to thwart President Joe Biden’s agenda.

The fate of the House is still uncertain as the GOP struggles to pull together a slim majority there.

Catherine Cortez Masto’s victory Saturday in Nevada gives Democrats the 50 seats they need to keep the Senate.

Her win reflects the surprising strength of Democrats across the U.S. this year.

Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer says the American people have rejected “the anti-democratic, authoritarian, nasty and divisive direction” of Republicans who were promoted by Donald Trump.

Biden says, “I feel good.”
