At a glance

  • It’s now a best of three contest for the Senate majority.
  • Republicans and Democrats must await results from toss-up races in Arizona, Nevada and Georgia and whichever party wins at least two of them will claim control of the Senate.
  • If they split Arizona and Nevada, the two parties will have to wait even longer: Neither Raphael Warnock nor Herschel Walker hit the 50 percent threshold needed to win outright, meaning the two men will square off again in a runoff election scheduled for early next month.
