    Democrats Score Huge Senate Win In Red State
    Democrat Heidi Heitkamp has won North Dakota's open Senate seat after Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.) conceded the race, reports the Associated Press.

    Heitkamp, a former state attorney general, defeated Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.) in the hotly contested race to fill the seat of retiring Democrat Kent Conrad.

    Heitkamp's win brings Democratic control of the U.S. Senate to 53 seats, with one Democratic-aligned independent and one independent, Sen.-elect Angus King (I-Me.) who has not announced who he will caucus with but is expected to join Democrats. Republicans will have 45 seats.
