Today, Wednesday, the Republicans won an additional seat in the US Senate by winning the state of Alaska, and are thus one seat within the reach of a majority in the House.

Outgoing Senator Dan Salivan easily won a new term in Alaska with 57% of the vote.

With the victory of Salivan in the elections, the Republican Party would have won half of the Senate seats. According to the current results, the Democrats won 48 seats in the House composed of 100 senators.

Sullivan joins the growing ranks of Republican incumbents who have successfully defended seats that Democrats targeted this year in their efforts to win the Senate majority. Democrats are now looking to what is expected to be two Georgia runoff races in January as their only remaining shot at winning a majority in the chamber.

Sullivan, first elected in 2014, highlighted his record in the Senate to argue that he has delivered for Alaskans and attempted to portray Gross as a far-left liberal.
