With victory in Virginia's Senate race the Democrats now have control of both Houses of Congress.

Democrat Jim Webb beat the incumbent Republican Senator George Allen by just a few votes.

Allen had been tipped as a possible presidential candidate in 2008, but his re-election campaign was damaged by remarks of his that were perceived as racist, and pictures of him as a student wearing a confederate flag badge.

Democrat James Webb emerged as the official winner over incumbent Republican George Allen. Virginia's other Senate seat is held by Republican John Warner.
