The Democratic Party is close to retaining its majority in the Senate

Nov 13 2022

ARK News… The Democratic Party to which US President Joe Biden belongs retained his seat in the Senate from Arizona, according to US media, Friday, bringing the party to a distance of only one seat to retain its majority in the House.

CNN and CBS reported that former astronaut Mark Kelly defeated his Republican opponent, Blake Masters, in this southwestern state.

Kelly's victory brings the number of Democratic senators to 49.

Two seats still have to be filled, one in Nevada, where vote counting continues, and one in Georgia, where a second round will take place on December 6.

And if both parties get 50 seats, which means the situation remains the same, the Democrats will retain control of the Senate thanks to the vote of Vice President Kamala Harris.

Kelly's rival, Blake Masters, in Arizona, has not yet admitted defeat.

Former President Donald Trump wrote on his social network Friday that some electoral machines did not work in Arizona, which led to "electoral fraud and fraud." He called for a "re-election".

The hope of Trump supporters for a Republican "tide" was not fulfilled. Although the final results of the election are not yet known, it appears that the Democrats have succeeded in limiting the damage.

Days after Tuesday's vote, it was not yet known which party would control Congress.

The Republicans appeared to be on course to win a majority in the House of Representatives, but they still need seven seats.
