2022 Elections: Dems Keep Senate, and More Results of Competitive Races

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Some states are still counting votes and control of Congress isn't fully settled, but many competitive Senate, House, and governor races have already been called.

Senate Race Projections:  Democract incumbent Sens. Mark Kelly (AZ) and Catherine Cortez Masto (NV) are projected to beat their Republican challengers, keeping the Senate in Democratic hands. Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D) beat Mehmet Oz (R) in Pennsylvania, flipping the seat for the Democrats. J.D. Vance (R) beat Tim Ryan (D) in Ohio. Incumbent Ron Johnson (R) beat Mandela Barnes (D) in Wisconsin. The potentially-pivotal Georgia race will go to a runoff election next month. As of 12:05 p.m. ET on Monday, Democrats held 50 Senate seats to Republicans' 49, according to the Associated Press (Lean Left bias)

House Race Projections: Republicans appear poised to take a majority in the House of Representatives, though it's likely to be narrower than expected. Republicans have won 212 seats to Democrats' 204, with 22 races yet to be called.

Gubernatorial Race Projections: Incumbent Greg Abbott (R) beat challenger Beto O’Rourke (D) in Texas. Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) beat State Senator Doug Mastriano (R) in Pennsylvania. Incumbent Brian Kemp (R) beat challenger Stacey Abrams (D) in Georgia. Incumbent Tony Evers (D) beat Tim Michels (R) in Wisconsin. Other gubernatorial wins in several states marked historic achievements for women and racial minorities.

How the Media is Covering It: Across the political spectrum, the current results are being framed as a success for Democrats, bucking the widely predicted Republican landslide.
