Senate Race Updates: Hickenlooper Gives Democrats First Pickup, Graham Holds Seat


Republicans are looking to hold on to their delicate three-seat majority in the Senate on Tuesday, and the balance of power could come down to just one or two races—here are the latest results: 

Colorado: Popular former governor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper knocked off Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), the Associated Press projects, handing Democrats their first Senate pickup of the night in a race they saw as crucial to taking back the majority.

South Carolina: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) survived a challenge from Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison, the Associated Press projects, in what amounts to the most expensive Senate loss in U.S. history after Harrison raised a record $57 million in the third quarter and more than $130 million overall.

Arizona: Democrats are strongly favored to pick up a seat in Arizona, where former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly is challenging Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), who has campaigned heavily as a Trump loyalist.
