Ten incumbents in Congress have lost their seats this election. The shifts were not enough to change the majority-leaning in either the House or Senate, but Democrats appear to have netted one seat in the Senate. While several House races have yet to be called, Republicans have the ability to net up to 11 incumbent seats (12 including the runoff in Georgia).

Based on only races The New York Times has called, Republicans have ousted five Democrats. Currently, Democrats hold 35 seats in the House more than Republicans, so even with open races that went to Republicans (such as the House race in Kansas), Democrats will retain control of the House.

The full list of incumbents who have either lost their seats or may be on the cusp of losing their seat is listed below. Races that have been called by the The New York Times are listed in bold, while the others indicate that the incumbent is currently losing.

Sen. Doug Jones (D)
