Challenger Maggie Hassan leads Sen. Kelly Ayotte by fewer than 2,000 votes with 97 percent of New Hampshire precincts reporting.

The race that many predicted would be among the tightest in the nation is still too close to call. The race was also widely seen as pivotal to the Democrats’ chance of taking control of the U.S. Senate.

Now, regardless of how the race plays out in New Hampshire, the race takes on little national meaning after Republicans recaptured control of the Senate Tuesday night. The party now holds 51 seats while Democrats hold 47.
