Democrats Keep Control of US Senate: TV Networks
President Barack Obama's Democratic party will keep control of the US Senate, the upper house of the US Congress, several US television networks projected Tuesday based on returns in Senate races across the country.

Democrats won three races that Republicans had targeted in their hopes of winning control of the Senate.

Republican candidates in the states of Missouri and Indiana lost after making controversial comments about abortion and rape.
And Democrats won the state of Massachusetts, where a Harvard University law professor, Elizabeth Warren, defeated incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown.

Going into Election Day, Democrats held a 53-47 majority in the Senate, including two independent Senators who caucus with the Democrats and generally vote with them.

The US Congress will be split again when it begins its new term in 2013, as Republicans kept control of the lower chamber, the House of Representatives in Tuesday's elections.
