— -- Republicans will keep control of the Senate — a surprising development after analysts predicted for months that Democrats would retake the chamber. The GOP also will maintain its majority in the House after losing far fewer seats than expected in that chamber as well.

The Senate electoral map favored Democrats this cycle, with Republicans defending 24 seats, compared with 10 for the Democrats. On Tuesday, Republicans were able to hold on to several seats in tight contests, such as in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Democrats picked up one Senate seat, with Tammy Duckworth defeating incumbent Republican Sen. Mark S. Kirk in Illinois.
