Senate Control Hangs on Uncalled States

More votes remain to be counted.

Vote counts are continuing in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Arizona, and Alaska, but only three of them had U.S. Senate races this year. There is no Senate race in Nevada or Pennsylvania, for example, and the race in Arizona was decided early.

Georgia had both a regular and special U.S. Senate election this year. Incumbent David Perdue is leading with 97 percent of votes counted. But the race has not been called as his lead is 50.2 percent to Jon Ossoff’s 47.5 percent, There will be a special runoff in January between the two other top contenders, Raphael Warnock, who held 32.5 percent of the vote, and incumbent Kelly Loeffler, with 26.1 percent.

In North Carolina, incumbent Thom Tillis is ahead with 48.7 percent over challenger Cal Cunningham at 46.9 percent.  Election officials there have until November 12 to complete their count.

Incumbent Dan Sullivan appears to be winning in Alaska, but with only 50 percent of ballots counted, the state will not call the election.

One party currently holds a slim edge over the other in the U.S. Senate. The final decisions will either retain or tip the chamber’s control.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For each of the candidates for U.S. Senate as they await the final say of the voters.
  • For the leadership in the Senate on both sides to graciously accept the results when they are known.
  • For an accurate count of the election ballots.
