2018 Senate Elections: Actual Results
35 U.S. Senate seats to be contested in 2018
Results for the 35 Senate races contested in 2018. Prior to the election, Republicans held 51 seats, Democrats 49, including two independents. In 2019, the count will be 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats.
Six seats changed party hands in the 2018 elections, with Republicans gaining two. The party won elections in Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota, while losing Arizona and Nevada.
Note that while the GOP gained two seats in the midterm elections, they lost a special election in Alabama in 2017. If you hear that Republicans gained one seat (instead of two) in this election cycle, that is the reason for the difference.
