North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis’s Democratic opponent Cal Cunningham conceded the race to the Republican senator on Tuesday. The Associated Press has not called the race for Tillis, but the apparent victory by the GOP incumbent gives Republicans at least 49 senators in the next Congress. In Alaska, Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan is leading his race, and two more seats will be decided in Jan. 5 runoffs in Georgia.
