5. What's left to be decided?

King and Sanders (Independent) caucus with the Democrats, and that brings it with Kelly and Hickenlooper to 49, right?

Is there a hint that Ossof will pull it off? And I guess Warnock is still in play?

8. Looks like both GA seats go to runoff.

Assuming Tillis holds his lead, it would take winning both of them to get 50/50.

7. Republicans would control the chamber until 1/20 when Harris becomes VP

The new Senate starts on 1/3. This shift happened in 2000 as well.

9. That isn't going to happen this cycle. Maybe 2022.
