After two long years, the election season is drawing to a close. And while everyone’s focused on who the next president could be, there’s much more at stake. Senate races in South Carolina, Iowa, Montana and Arizona are all close and consequential.

In recent weeks, Senate Democrats sparred with their Republican colleagues over a second coronavirus stimulus bill and have attempted to block the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, with very limited success. A flipped Senate would be key to a potential Biden administration’s success.

How are the most contentious Senate races going around the country? And what could they mean for the Senate going forward?
