It’s almost 10 a.m. ET. Here’s where House, Senate and presidential races stand.
It’s the morning after Election Day, and CNN has not yet projected who will win the presidency. Votes are still being counted in Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Maine, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
At this hour, both candidates still have pathways to get to 270 electoral votes – the number of votes needed to win the presidency.
Based on the races called so far, this is where the race to 270 stands right now:
In the Senate, Republicans have dramatically narrowed the path for Democrats to take back the majority, preventing upsets in red states such as South Carolina, Iowa and Montana. But with much of the vote still being counted, Democrats could still win four of these remaining races — and the White House — to take the Senate majority.
Here’s a look at the states where Senate seats are still up for grabs:
Alaska: GOP Sen. Dan Sullivan faces Democrat Al Gross.
Arizona: GOP Sen. Martha McSally is up against Democrat Mark Kelly.
Georgia: GOP Sen. David Perdue faces Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff.
Georgia special election: This race will go into a runoff between Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Democrat Raphael Warnock. The special election had featured a divisive, intra-party matchup between Loeffler and GOP Rep. Doug Collins.
Maine: GOP Sen. Susan Collins faces a challenge from Democrat Sara Gideon.
Michigan: Democratic Sen. Gary Peters faces Republican challenger John James.
North Carolina: GOP Sen. Thom Tillis is running against Democrat Cal Cunningham.
Republicans had a better night than expected holding on to some of their House seats. At least two incumbent Democrats were ousted by GOP challengers, and more could come as many races are yet to be called.
On the Democratic side, all four congresswomen of “the Squad” — Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts — won re-election. Since taking office in January 2019, the lawmakers, all women of color, have electrified the progressive base thanks to their social media savvy but have also attracted controversy, most notably over their criticism of the US relationship with Israel.
Here’s a look at where the balance of power in congress currently sits:
