The Democrats need a seat to retain a majority in the US Senate

On Saturday, Joe Biden appeared poised to retain control of the Senate at a time Republicans appear close to stripping him of the House majority.

But all eyes are on 2024, with the possible announcement Tuesday that Donald Trump will run for president again.

Three television networks announced the re-election of Democratic Senator Mark Kelly of Arizona.

Former astronaut Kelly’s victory over Republican opponent Blake Masters brings the number of Democratic senators to 49 so far, a one-seat difference to ensure a majority while voting continues in Nevada and a second round will be held in Georgia on December 6th.

Winning a seat is enough for Democrats to retain control of the Senate while using Vice President Kamala Harris’ vote to break the constitutional tie.

In Arizona, Mark Kelly defeated Blake Masters, who won the support of the former Republican president, who featured heavily on the campaign trail.

But her victory seems to have been less than announced. As of Saturday morning, NBC News expected a slim majority with a five-seat lead for the Republicans, who would get 220 seats versus 215 seats for the Democrats.

This is because the count is still ongoing at about twenty polling stations, mostly in California.

Once the political scene in the House and Senate has crystallized, attention will turn to 2024, with the possibility of former President Donald Trump announcing his candidacy on Tuesday, according to one of his close advisers.
