Democrats Keep Senate Majority as Warren Defeats Brown

Democrats retained control of the U.S. Senate by holding on to crucial seats in Virginia, Montana and Missouri, capturing the Indiana seat held by a retiring Republican and ousting a Republican in Massachusetts, where Elizabeth Warren beat incumbent Scott Brown.

Failed Republican attempts to defeat Democrats Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana, Bill Nelson of Florida and Sherrod Brown of Ohio helped tipped the scale to Democrats. If Maine independent Angus King caucuses with Democrats, as expected, the party would expand its current 53-47 advantage by at least one seat.
