A Congress divided: GOP holds House, but Dems fend off challenges in Senate

After months of furious campaigning by hundreds of candidates, Republicans failed to grab the Senate and Democrats couldn’t make inroads in the House — leaving the balance of power in Congress unchanged.

Republicans fell short Tuesday in their effort to win the Senate and take full control of Congress, losing practically every key race — a series of frustrating losses two years after the party’s gains in the midterm elections.

Democrats also fell short of their goal of picking up 25 House seats, which would have given them control of the 435-member chamber.

With President Obama securing a second term Tuesday night, he will continue to face a divided Congress for at least the next two years.
