Republicans flipped a Democratic seat and held eight other key seats to maintain their majority in the state Senate.

The GOP went into Election Day with an 18-15 advantage in the Senate. Thirteen seats were in play, including eight Republican seats. Democrats needed to hold their five seats and flip three GOP seats to win a 17-16 majority.

But Republicans held their eight seats and Andre Jacque defeated Democratic incumbent Caleb Frostman on Tuesday night to give the GOP an 18-13 advantage with two races undecided.
