Democrats take control of Senate after winning Nevada

Democrats retained control of the US Senate, fended off Republican efforts to win back the Senate and made it difficult for them to thwart US President Joe Biden’s agenda.

The fate of the US House of Representatives remains uncertain as the Republican Party battles for a narrow majority there. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto’s victory in Nevada gave Democrats the 50 seats they needed to retain control of the Senate. Her victory reflects the surprising strength of Democrats in the United States this election year. Catherine Cortez Masto, seeking re-election in an economically challenging state with some of the highest gas prices in the country, was considered the most vulnerable senator and her win further frustrated Republicans, who were confident she could be defeated. US President Joe Biden expressed his delight after being informed that Democrats would retain control of the Senate following their nominee’s victory in Nevada.

“I’m feeling good and looking forward to the next two years,” Biden told reporters in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, where he is currently attending the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit.

With Masto’s win, Democrats will now control at least 50 seats, with Vice President Kamla Harris poised to break a tie in the 100-seat Senate.
