Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Chris VanHollen is still insisting that Democrats can hold onto the majority in the House, even with a few hours of closed polls and losses behind them.
This comes even as the major news outlets — Fox,
CNN, and MSNBC — have projected the House going to Republicans, although the exact House pickup is to be determined.
"We knew it would be challenging and we also knew that people understood how high the stakes are in this election. And we remain confident that we are going to have a strong showing and we'll keep the majority, said VanHollen.
An NBC reporter alerted VanHollen that they had called the House majority for the Republicans, and he was taken aback.
"I think that's a mistake, that's way too early, I think that's a mistake, what you are seeing right now is that the voters are continuing to go to the polls, I think it's a mistake," VanHollen said.
When asked about losses in Virginia and Indiana, he responded that those were expected and reminded reporters that plenty of races are still open.
"If you look at the races that have been called those are the races people expected to be called."
