    The national spotlight was on the New Hampshire Senate race on Election Day Tuesday. 

    The race between incumbent Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte and her opponent, Democratic Governor Maggie Hassan has been one of the most expensive races. And the race was still deadlocked at 48 percent as of 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

    Hassan said early Wednesday that the race was still too close to call, but she has "a small, but sustainable lead."

    Ayotte said she did not expect to know whether she won or lost the U.S. Senate race on Tuesday night. But she said she felt "really upbeat" about her chances.
