The early returns on the Senate races show that the Republicans are on pace to keep control of the Senate as Alabama electing Tommy Tuberville flipped at least one seat in the Republican’s favor thus far.
Coming into Election Day, the Republicans were aiming to keep their 51-47 majority in the US Senate and it seems as though they’ll keep their lead although they may not have grown their majority at all.
Glancing over the political betting odds at the time of press no underdog has won any of the Senate races meaning that sportsbooks have forecasted the results correctly.
While it remains to be seen if sportsbooks can continue this streak in some of the West Coast states, early indications show that this trend will continue and Republicans will likely maintain control of the Senate but it will be close.
