Mark Kelly, winner of the Arizona Democratic Party

After the expected victory in Arizona, US President Joe Biden moved closer with the Democratic Party to maintaining control of the Senate.

Three days after the Americans cast their votes, CBS (the BBC’s American partner) suggested that Democrat Mark Kelly would win over his Republican challenger, Blake Masters.

With this victory, the Democrats have 49 seats and the Republicans 49 seats in the Senate, until the results of the states of Nevada and Georgia appear.

The vote counting in Nevada reveals a tight convergence of results between the two candidates, while the race will be decided in Georgia next month in a run-off.
