Tight New Hampshire Senate race remains undecided

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) –  The U.S. Senate race between Republican Kelly Ayotte and Democrat Maggie Hassan remained tight, a U.S. Senate race that was still suspenseful but less significant to the national political scene as it was thought to be yesterday. Voters across the country elected Republican representatives yesterday to give the party the majority in Congress.

In the governor’s race, Republican Chris Sununu beat Democrat Colin Van Ostern to succeed Democrat Peter Shumlin, who decided not to run for a fourth term.

Around 12:30 a.m., Ayotte and Hasson spoke to their supporters, urging them to keep confident but to go home and sleep.

They are locked in with 48 percent of the vote each as of around 5 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The winner is expected to be announced later this morning.
