US President Joe Biden’s Democrats have inched closer to keeping control of the Senate, with a projected win in Arizona following the midterm elections. CBS estimates Democrat Mark Kelly has beaten Republican challenger Blake Masters. That would leave the Senate at 49 Democratic seats and 49 Republican seats. Just Nevada and Georgia are yet to be decided. The vote count in Nevada is neck and neck, while Georgia’s race will be settled by a run-off election next month.
