The most closely watched race remains, and will remain the rest of the night, the Tennessee Senate election, where Republican Bob Corker has maintained a lead over Democrat Harold Ford, but it is too close to call.
Democrats have been projected to take over seats in Ohio, Rhode Island, where a liberal Republican in Lincoln Chafee was unseated and Pennsylvania, where Rick Santorum lost definitively.
