(NewsNation) — Incumbent Republican Senator Rand Paul is projected to win the Kentucky Senate race, defeating Democratic challenger Charles Booker, according to NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ.

Abortion is also on the ballot in Kentucky, with a ballot measure that would amend the state’s constitution to say that it does not guarantee the right to an abortion or requires government funding for abortion services.

Kentucky is one of five states where voters will be weighing in on reproductive rights. Polling data from June showed 62% of Kentuckians oppose abortion bans that do not include exceptions for rape or incest.

On Tuesday, 2022, 470 seats in the U.S. Congress — 35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats — are up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden`s remaining years in office.
