Balance of power: Democrats' Senate drive halted by GOP; key races undecided

Democrats faced increasingly long odds as the battle for Senate control hangs in balance, and Republicans brushed back multiple challengers to protect their majority. Still, it was too soon for the GOP to declare victory.

In Michigan, Democrats were spared a loss late Wednesday when Sen. Gary Peters beat back a tough challenge from Republican John James. But Republicans held on to Susan Collins in Maine and other key seats across the map.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump’s campaign helped his GOP allies, but that state election officials were still counting ballots. Key Senate races in North Carolina, Alaska and Georgia remained undecided.

“We're waiting — whether I'm going to be the majority leader or not,” McConnell said at a news conference in his home state of Kentucky.

South Carolina woman accused of dumping newborns in trash skips out on her trial, warrant issued

A South Carolina mother who prosecutors say dumped two of her babies in trash bins a year apart shortly after they were born did not show up for her trial on two counts of homicide by child abuse.

A judge issued a warrant to order Dayvault to come to court. If she isn’t found and the jury convicts her, the sentence will be sealed until she can be brought to court.
