Setback for Obama as Republicans win control of Senate
November 5 , 2014
The US Senate is now in control of the Republicans after mid-term elections that may diminish the clout of Barack Obama's two remaining years of presidency.
The GOP has won in Montana, North Carolina, Iowa, Arkansas, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Colorado. More gains are expected for the Republicans as votes get counted in the remaining states.
Media reports stated the Republican leader Mitch McConnell said the results were a vote against the Obama administration which Americans “can no longer trust”.
