Elections 2014 Results: Republicans capture five seats

The Republicans grabbed at least five Democratic Senate seats Tuesday night as the US midterm election results continue to alter the landscape.

With victories in Colorado, South Dakota, Arkansas, Montana and West Virginia, the Republicans are just one seat away of dislodging the Democratic party as the majority. Moreover, there are plenty of races are still to be counted and determined that would swing in favor of the GOP party.

The current dissatisfaction of the people in the Obama administration was the factor why these “blue states” were turned into red in the election results.

Voters are “hungry for new leadership. They want a reason to be hopeful,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Kentuccy Republican poised to become majority leader.

Rep. Shelley Moore Capito provided the GOP an early start, becoming West Virginia’s first Republican senator in 56 years and its first woman senator ever.

Republican victories in South Dakota and Montana – seats held by retiring Democrats – soon followed.

In Arkansas, GOP challenger Rep. Tom Cotton defeated two-term Sen. Mark Pryor after a campaign in which the Democratic incumbent was linked to the unpopular President, and in Colorado, Rep. Cory Gardner ousted incumbent Democrat Mark Udall.

According to reports, Democratic Sen. Mark Warner was battling to hold on to his seat. With 92% of the election precincts reporting, Warner was leading former Republican National Chairman Ed Gillespie 48.7% to 48.6% – a margin of only 3,000 votes in Virginia.

There are handful of states yet to have full election returns. Will there be a miracle for the Democratic Party?
