Republicans kept control of the Virginia state Senate on Tuesday despite millions from billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s gun control advocacy group backing Democrats.

Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety advocacy group had made the Virginia races an election focus. It spent $2.2 million in ads for two Democratic Senate candidates in a bid to have the party take control of the 40-seat chamber.
