Results are being declared in the US midterm elections, with control of Congress hanging in the balance
Republicans are likely to take control of the House of Representatives but the Senate fight is on a knife-edge
Democrat John Fetterman, who suffered a stroke in May, defeated his Republican opponent Mehmet Oz to flip a key Senate seat in Pennsylvania
But the results of three tight races that will decide the contest have yet to be called – in Georgia, Nevada and Arizona
If Democrats lose control of either chamber of Congress, Republicans will be able to block President Joe Biden’s agenda
In Kentucky, voters rejected an amendment that would have removed abortion rights from the constitution
Meanwhile Florida’s Republican governor Ron DeSantis, a possible 2024 presidential contender, has won a large victory to stay in office
