Sen. Barrasso: 'Very Optimistic' GOP Will Hold, Grow Senate

(Fox News/"America's Newsroom")

Senate Policy Committee Chairman John Barrasso said Tuesday he's "very optimistic" about Republicans' chances of holding the Senate during the midterm elections and even adding members because of what President Donald Trump has promised and delivered on with job growth.

"We're at historically high job growth and historically low unemployment in this country," the Wyoming Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

"He has promised to grow the economy. We have a strong, healthy, growing economy, because of the tax cuts. We've gotten rid of the regulations and this incredible unleashing of American energy."

Democrats, though, are using "scare tactics" while trying to gain advantage, said Barrasso, but "the voters are smarter than to fall for that."

"They've seen what we've promised and delivered," said Barrasso. "[We've eliminated the mandates of the Obamacare law. People are very happy about that. We've promised infrastructure legislation and I'm back in Washington today because the president is signing the America Water Infrastructure Act, his largest infrastructure piece of legislation.

The Democrats can threaten and try to instill fear in the American voter. The Americans can see what are they better off now than they were two years ago."

He added that candidates around the country are feeling "new energy" after Trump's travels to appear in their states to support and campaign for them.

"You looked at the turnout in Texas last night," said Barrasso. "Remarkable. Over 20,000 people. In Nevada...former President [Barack] Obama was there yesterday, I think they had about 2,000 people there. So President Trump is outdrawing President Obama by 10-1."
