In an interesting article (which includes quotes from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell), “How McConnell is maneuvering to keep the Senate in GOP hands and navigating Trump” Manu Raju, CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent outlines the leader’s “intense focus at holding onto his perch atop the Senate and keeping the majority in GOP hands, navigating one of the most tumultuous elections of his long political career while finding a way to take advantage of having a Republican in the White House, even one who has a penchant for putting GOP senators in a jam time and again.”
Asked if he thinks Trump is a net positive for Senate Republican candidates on the ticket, McConnell would only say: “We’ll find out. That’s something that we’ll only know the day after the election.”
Leader McConnell said it’s “just a hugely challenging cycle to hold onto” the majority and said it’s a “50-50 situation,” arguing that races in Montana, Colorado, Arizona, Iowa, North Carolina, Maine and Georgia are far too close to call.
“That’s why I describe it like a knife fight in an alley,” McConnell said of the battle for the Senate. “Everybody’s slugging it out.”
