US Election 2020 live: Trump and Biden results | Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia... 

While all eyes are on the race between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden for the White House, there is also a tight battle for the Senate going on as Democrats look to take control of Congress’ upper house following six years of Republican control.

There are 35 of the Senate’s 100 seats up for grabs in the 2020 general election. Sixty-five seats are not being contested this time round -- 30 of which are held by Republicans, with 35 held by Democrats (two of those seats are held by independent senators Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Angus King of Maine, who caucus with the Democrats).

As things currently stand, the two main parties are neck and neck in the race to win the 51-seat Senate majority. Republicans have won 18 of the 35 seats being contested, bringing their total to 48 (including their 30 non-contested seats); while Democrats are also on 48 having so far gained 13 seats to add to their 35 non-contested seats.

With four seats yet to be decided in Alaska, Georgia and North Carolina (see end of this article to see how things are going in these states), here are the 31 senators who have so far won election/re-election to the US Senate in 2021.
