Background

The Republican Party has been in majority control of the Senate since 1995, and hasn't come close to losing it since then. Although the Democratic Party holds some support from urban areas and districts with a large Native American population, they have been losing seats over time; the last time Democrats held a number of seats in the double-digits was 2010.
