Schumer: Dems on Brink of Pulling off Surprise Victories in Senate Races

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Democrats are on the verge of pulling off surprises in the midterm Senate races.

Schumer made his remarks during a Friday interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“This election is neck and neck,” he said. “I’m talking in the Senate. In the House it’s not neck and neck. A year ago, if I came on the show and would have said it’s neck and neck, you would have said: ‘Forget about it.’”

“And what we have found in states where we thought we were way behind, we are neck and neck. In states where we thought we were neck and neck, we’re ahead. We’re doing much better than anyone thinks in a very, very tough map.”

He said the key issue is healthcare.

“We’re closing on that issue and it is going to help us just have victory in state after state after state, including places that people didn’t expect," he said.

“I won’t get into specific states. But across the board, we’re doing better in places that we never though we could."

Meanwhile former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said Republicans should do more to capitalize on the issue of the nation’s strong economic grown in the days leading up to the midterm elections.

“The problem is Republicans led by the president have not made this the center issue of the campaign,” he said.
