Yahoo! National News - Wed, 11/05/2014 - 13:52

Election workers open Oregon ballots and check signatures at Multnomah County election headquarters in Portland, Ore., Monday, Nov. 3, 2014. On the eve of an election that will decide the Senate majority, it's time for closing arguments and an all-out effort to motivate people to vote, Republicans have claimed new momentum in midterm campaigns that have centered on President Barack Obama, who is not on Tuesday's ballot. Under the weight of the unpopular president, Democrats are fighting to distance themselves from the White House and convince voters they deserve to maintain the Senate majority for the final two years of Obama's presidency. The GOP is sounding confident that it will take Senate control. (AP Photo/Don Ryan)Republicans rolled up the string of victories they needed Tuesday night to seize control the Senate, the biggest prize in the midterm elections.
