President Barack Obama's Democrats retained their majority in the US Senate in Tuesday's election, fending off a concerted Republican bid to win back control of the chamber, US media reported.

Based on initial results, CNN and Fox News projected the Democrats had picked up three seats and held on elsewhere. The Democrats were trying to defend 23 out of 33 seats that were up for election in the 100-seat upper chamber.
