McConnell Wins in Kentucky as Republicans Hold Senate Seat

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky was re-elected for a seventh-term, the Associated Press projected, beating Democrat Amy McGrath.

McConnell defeated McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, in a race he was expected to win even though he didn’t keep pace with McGrath’s fundraising.

Democrats need a net gain of three seats to take control of the Senate if Joe Biden wins the presidency, or four if President Donald Trump is re-elected.
