While all eyes are on the presidential election, the Senate races are perhaps the most important races in the election. These will determine whether the GOP will hold on to their power going forward and be able control or influence the direction of the country.
The Senate is currently composed of 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and two independents who caucus with Democrats. If Democrats win three Senate races and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wins the presidency, then Democrats will control the Senate, with Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris presiding over any tiebreakers as vice president. If Biden loses the election, Democrats need to win four Senate seats to take control. (RELATED: Democratic Challengers In 10 Key Senate Races Outraise Republicans By $34 Million)
