Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley has defeated Sen. Claire McCaskill in the state's heated U.S. Senate race.
The race between Hawley and McCaskill was one of the closest in the country. They were neck and neck in the polls throughout the election.
But it's not too surprising Hawley came out on top. McCaskill was considered to be one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats running for re-election.
Hawley was elected Missouri's attorney general in 2016. This was his first run for Senate.
