This blog was changed to fix the number of votes in Georgia’s Senate race. Walker is behind Warnock in the race.

As of Wednesday morning, control of the U.S. House and Senate was still up in the air. This was because states all over the country were still counting votes in races that were very close.

A series of close races will decide whether Democrats keep their slim majorities in the House and Senate or whether Republicans take over one or both of the legislative chambers.

In Pennsylvania, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman is expected to beat Republican Mehmet Oz for a key Senate seat, giving the Democrats a big win. There were still important Senate races to be decided in Georgia, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona.

It could take days or even weeks to figure out how much power each party has, especially in the Senate, where Georgia’s race could go to a runoff in early December. With 96% of the votes counted, Democrat Raphael Warnock is ahead of GOP candidate Herschel Walker by 0.5 percentage points. However, neither candidate has more than 50% of the votes, which is what state election rules say is needed to win the seat.

NBC thought that Republicans could end up with 220 seats in the House, which would give them a narrow majority. But the party went into Election Day hoping to take control of the chamber by a large majority.
