This market will settle at $10.00 if the Democratic Party retains control of the US Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections.

This market will settle at $0.00 if the Democratic Party does not retain control of the US Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections.

Settlement will be based on the outcome of the 2014 mid-term elections. If there is any uncertainty over the outcome of individual Senate races, or any delays in confirming the outcome, Intrade reserves the right to wait for further information before settling this market. 

The Democrats will be considered in control of the Senate if they hold 50 Senate seats (they vote of the Vice President of the United States in his or her role as President of the Senate to break any ties).

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT INDEPENDENTS:

For settlement purposes any Senate seat held by an Independent who caucuses with the Democrats will be considered a Democratic seat. 

 


What if I want to bet on the Republicans winning the Senate?

We have decided to list only one market for control of the Senate - the Democrats to retain control. If you want to take the opposite position (the Republicans to take control) then you need to short sell the market. An explanation on how this is done can be found HERE. Or you can email help@intrade.com and we'll explain how things work.
