Democrats won a seat they didn’t have to retain control of the U.S. Senate on Saturday, a decisive victory for incumbent Joe Biden and a bitter defeat for his predecessor, Donald Trump.
Four days later By-elections, US media have reported that Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto has won the key state of Nevada. The incumbent narrowly defeated Adam Laxalt, a candidate backed by former President Donald Trump, according to US television networks.
His re-election brings the number of Democrats elected to the Senate to 50 to 100, allowing Joe Biden’s party to control the upper house of Congress. According to the Constitution, Vice President Kamala Harris has the power to decide between senators.
