REPUBLICANS Gain Control of the United States Senate, Giving GOP Control Over Both Houses for First Time Since 2006

(World Net Daily) -- Mission accomplished: The GOP won a majority of seats in the Senate, giving Republicans control over both chambers of Congress for the first time since 2006 – and giving them hope of putting the brakes on President Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America.

The GOP is running neck and neck in Georgia and North Carolina, and results are still to come from Iowa and Alaska.

In Kentucky, Democratic contender Alison Lundergan Grimes lost her chance of unseating incumbent Republican Mitch McConnell, who is set to become Senate majority leader if Republicans net at least six seats. McConnell told his campaign party: “[My wife] Elaine told me she wasn’t ready to have me sitting around the house working on my resume.” He added, “They (Kentuckians) want some reassurance that the people who run the government are actually on their side.”

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told Fox News, “It was a referendum not only on the president, but on Hillary Clinton as well. It turns out Hillary Clinton doesn’t have a lot of coattails in Kentucky.”
