Networks project a win for Democrat Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire

New Hampshire’s Jeanne Shaheen has won another term in the U.S. Senate, major news networks are projecting, in what is an incredibly important Democratic hold.

ABC News was the first out of the gate to declare a win for Shaheen. NBC News/MSNBC followed suit shortly thereafter.

Shaheen faced Republican Scott Brown, who previously served in the Senate from Massachusetts, having defeated Martha Coakley for the remainder of Ted Kennedy’s unexpired term. Brown was knocked out two years ago by Elizabeth Warren, now the senior senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Brown subsequently moved to New Hampshire and launched a campaign against Shaheen. Polling consistently showed her with a small lead, but the race was considered competitive. Shaheen’s victory is significant, because Democrats needed her to win in order to stand a chance of holding the U.S. Senate majority.
