High-spending battle for Senate control down to the wire
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — The race for control of the Senate is tearing toward its finale on a last-minute burst of cash from both sides — with a half-dozen top races essentially tied.
The outcomes — in states from Nevada to Missouri and to New Hampshire — will determine which party can claim the Senate majority next year. The late-breaking news of a renewed FBI investigation related to Hillary Clinton's emails has the potential to shift the campaigns in favor of the GOP in the final days.
Republicans have been fretting about the possibility the toss-ups will break against them Nov. 8.
Friday's news that the FBI will investigate whether there's classified information in newly discovered emails related to Clinton is giving Republicans fresh hope that the races could break their way.
