The Associated Press called the U.S. senate race in Kansas. Rep. Roger Marshall won Sen. Pat Roberts seat after Roberts decided to retire this year.

Republican Marshall ran against Democratic nominee Dr. Barbara Bollier in the typically red state. If elected, Bollier would have been the first Democratic senator in Kansas since 1932.

Bollier conceded late Tuesday evening.

The race was tight, and Marshall had 53 percent of the votes with 95 precincts reporting.

Libertarian Jason Buckley also ran for the senate seat and had 5 percent of the votes.
