Control of the White House and Senate remained unresolved on Election Night, with Pennsylvania expected to take days to certify a result in the presidential contest, and a run-off set to be held in Georgia's special election for the Senate.
Early predictions of a "Blue Wave" appeared premature Tuesday night, as President Donald Trump appeared set to hold the key states of Texas and Florida, while former vice president Joe Biden was projected to flip Arizona, setting up narrowing paths to victory for both candidates.
Campaigners and commentators Tuesday night widely pointed to Pennsylvania as critical to either candidate's chances of success, while state officials warned it could be days before a result was certified, after an unprecedented number of ballots were cast by mail owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
In the Senate, Republicans and Democrats each flipped single seats, with outstanding races looking to favor the incumbents, and a runoff between the top two candidates in Georgia set for January, teeing up a reduced majority for the Republicans, but with upset results still possible.
