The Nevada Senate race has been called for Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto, giving control of the chamber to Democrats.
The only hope Republicans have now is holding the House of Representatives.
How in the world did this midterm election turn into such a disaster?
Breitbart News reports:
Catherine Cortez Masto Holds On to Nevada U.S. Senate Seat, Democrats Win Senate Control
Democrats will keep control of the Senate due to Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto’s (D-NV) narrow election victory against Republican Adam Laxalt, the Associated Press projected on Saturday evening.
The race results come after several days of delayed mail-in ballot counting — Cortez Masto secured a win with just under 5,000 votes by the time the Associated Press called the race, with 48.7 percent for Cortez Masto and 48.2 percent for former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt.
With Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly’s win in Arizona, Democrats will now hold a 50-49 majority in the Senate.
“The party will retain control of the chamber, no matter how next month’s Georgia runoff plays out, by virtue of Vice President Kamala Harris’s tiebreaking vote,” AP reported…
The race was a close one for months, often projecting either candidate winning within a margin of error. Closer to election day, some polling showed Laxalt taking a slim lead, and by Election Day, RealClearPolitics averaged out Laxalt’s advantage at 3.4 points.
That’s it for the Senate, folks.

Republicans had better hold on to their lead in the House.
Don’t think for one minute that this situation can’t get worse.
