WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans have seized control of the Senate for the first time in eight years.

The deciding race was the victory by Republican Thom Tillis over Democratic incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan in North Carolina.

Tillis’ win gives the Republicans the six seats they need for a majority in the Senate that takes office in January.

Republicans picked up seats earlier Tuesday in Arkansas, Colorado, Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia.
