North Dakota's Republican Gov. John Hoeven has won the U.S. Senate race, gaining a seat how held by a Democrat.
The victory making him the first Republican from the state to hold that office in a quarter-century.
Hoeven easily outpolled poorly funded Democrat Tracy Potter on Tuesday for the Senate seat now held by retiring Democrat Byron Dorgan.
Hoeven is the country's longest-tenured governor. He is the only governor in state history to win three four-year terms.
Federal Election Commission filings show that Hoeven raised more than $3.1 million for his campaign through September, or about $3 million more than Potter.
