Notes: 
Sen. Harry Reid (D)'s retirement led to an open seat race pitting Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto against U.S. Rep. Joe Heck.  Trump's candidacy raised complications for Republican candidates around the country; for Heck, following release of the Access Hollywood tapes, he withdrew his suppport on Oct. 8.  After a closely fought campaign, Cortez Masto held the seat for the Democrats, winning by 2.43 percentage points.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics this was the third most expensive U.S. Senate race of the cycle; a total of $128.1 million was spent, $30.9 million by the campaigns and $97.2 million by outside groups (+).
  According to the FEC for 2015-16 the Cortez Masto campaign reported disbursements of $19.0 million compared to $11.9 million for the Heck campaign (+).
