The gains and losses in the election.

The 2018 United States Senate elections produced a majority for Democrats and a loss for Republicans and the newly elected Libertarian Party. The GOP was hopeful it would pick up Republican-leaning states that had Democratic Senators. States like Montana, Missouri and Indiana. However, the Trump-like Tea Party rhetoric that many of the GOP candidates used was very harmful to the Hispanic Vote. Thats why Democrats gained states like Nevada and Arizona that have large populations of Hispanic voters.

Ultimately, the GOP gained only one seat. North Dakota. Which, had been leaning GOP all the way this election.

The Libertarians also gained one seat in the Senate. New Mexico, which Gary Johnson the former presidential candidate won. This is the first time any third party has gained a seat in the U.S. Senate since Robert M. La Follette of Wisconsin in 1946.
