Two, maybe three, Senate seats remain in the balance

Associated Press

Tester - Rosendale (MT)(November 7, 2018) — The morning after the midterms, at least two Senate races are still too close to call – and another may require a recount.

Montana

The race for U.S. Senate in Montana between Democratic incumbent Jon Tester and Republican Matt Rosendale is too close to call (candidates pictured). As of 3:45 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Rosendale holds a lead of 6,082 votes out of more than 355,000 cast – a margin of roughly 1.7 percent.

Roughly a third of precincts remain to be counted.

Arizona

The race for U.S. Senate in Arizona between Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is too close to call. As of 3:45 a.m. EST on Wednesday, McSally holds a lead of 17,240 votes out of more than 1.6 million cast – a margin of roughly 1 percent.

Roughly 25 percent of votes in Arizona are counted after Election Day.

Florida

The race for U.S. Senate in Florida between Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott is too close to call – although Scott has claimed victory. With all precincts reporting as of 3:45 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Scott holds a lead of 38,717 votes out of more than 8 million cast – a margin of less than one half of 1 percent.

Under state law in Florida, a recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points. The Associated Press does not call any race that may proceed to a recount. (Update: Nelson says he's getting ready for a recount.)
