“The Republicans were at full strength a long time ago,” Plouffe said at a press conference Thursday. “They are in a good place; the point is I don’t see another surge here. ... We have an opportunity, I think, to close the gap a little bit. And if we do that, I think we have the ability to hold on to the House and the Senate and win some of these governor’s races.”
