That’s right, Fivey. Alaska released another batch of votes overnight, and Trump still leads there 57 percent to 39 percent, while Sullivan still leads 57 percent to 38 percent. Since Biden and Gross aren’t making up their deficits quickly enough, our colleagues at ABC News have decided to project both races for the Republicans.

That’s not too surprising in the presidential race, but some Democrats had pegged Alaska as a potential sleeper race in the Senate. That clearly didn’t pan out. And with that projection, the Senate now sits at 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats, with control set to be decided by the two Georgia runoffs in January.
