Republicans capture control of Senate in U.S. midterm electi

Republicans rolled up big victories on Tuesday and seized control of the U.S. Senate in midterm elections that tipped the balance of power away from President Barack Obama and will complicate his remaining two years in office.


The Republican takeover of the Senate in January will force Obama to scale back his legislative agenda and limit his ambitions to either executive actions that do not require legislative approval, or items that might gain bipartisan support, such as trade agreements and tax reform.
