New Hampshire's Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte has lost her seat to the state's Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan.
The race was especially close, with Hassan leading Ayotte by just over 1,000 votes. Ayotte conceded Wednesday afternoon.
The match-up was a tight one. It was widely regarded as a race that could define which party controls the Senate — and the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice.
