(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the U.S. Senate race in Washington for incumbent Democrat Patty Murray.
Murray won reelection as the Democratic stalwart prevailed in a campaign in which she repeatedly said her Republican challenger was too extreme for Washington state.
Washington’s 10 U.S. House races are gaining national attention by a few close races in the state.
Of particular interest is the race between Democratic Rep. Kim Schrier and Republican Matt Larkin. Schrier won re-election in 2020 by just 4 percentage points, and experts put the race too close to call.
Murray bested defeated Tiffany Smiley on Tuesday in her quest for a sixth term.
Murray’s 30 years in the Senate place her behind only Democratic Sens. Warren Magnuson and Henry “Scoop” Jackson for longest service in the Senate from the Evergreen State.
On Tuesday, 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.
Early voting in Washington started on Oct. 21. Polls for in-person voting open until 8 p.m. on. Tuesday
