UPDATE: Republicans have claimed close Senate races in Pennsylvania and Missouri to ensure the party will retain at worst a 52-48 majority in the next Congress.
Well after 1 a.m. EST, the Associated Press called Pennsylvania for incumbent Sen. Pat Toomey, who led Democrat Katie McGinty by 1.5 percent with almost 99 percent of precincts reporting. Toomey likely will finish slightly ahead of GOP nominee Donald Trump after running a moderate campaign and separating himself from the presidential contender.
