Six years ago, former New Hampshire Gov. Jeanne Shaheen lost a tough Senate race to Republican John Sununu.

The rematch, according to projections by three networks, goes to Shaheen. Combined with Tom Udall's projected win in New Mexcio, we now have a net gain of four Senate seats for the Democrats so far.
