McCaskill - Hawley (MO)Missouri's attorney general has won a U.S. Senate seat in a closely watched race against Sen. Claire McCaskill.

Fox News called the race for Hawley with 63 percent of precincts reporting, giving the Republican Party its third flipped senate seat of the night after wins in Indiana and North Dakota. 

Hawley was leading the incumbent senator 53-43 when he was projected to win. 

McCaskill, first elected in 2006, has been running for re-election with Hawley remaining a close challenger: both candidates swapped the lead in polls throughout the year, never leading the other by more than four points.

The senator and her challenger were statistically tied according to RealClearPolitics going into Election Day.

McCaskill voted against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a state Donald Trump won, and in recent days she suggested she is not a "crazy" Democrat and also criticized the migrant caravan moving north to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Hawley, 38, won election to state attorney general in 2017.
