Karl Rove: Kentucky, Georgia, Iowa Likely to Go GOP

By    |   Tuesday, 28 Oct 2014 10:21 PM

Republican strategist Karl Rove tells Fox News he expects three close Senate elections to go Republican on November 4.

In Kentucky, national Democrats have again starting pumping money into the campaign of Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Appearing Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," Rove said the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which had dropped ad buys for Grimes, did not come back because Grimes has shown better poll numbers. They came back, he said, because Bill Clinton's campaign chairman in the state is her father and they likely had Clinton call in a favor.

"Kentucky's over and done with," Rove said.

In Iowa, Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley, who is facing Republican Joni Ernst, is not an incumbent senator, but is a current member of the House. "So he has all the same bad votes that the Democratic incumbent senators have without the advantage of running and serving statewide," Rove said.

Rove also thinks that in Georgia that Republican David Perdue will beat Democrat Michelle Nunn despite recent gains by Nunn, the daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn.
