The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to discuss how the GOP’s chances of maintaining control of the Senate have improved in recent weeks.
Cillizza mentioned both the races in Ohio and Florida as reasons why the GOP’s chances have improved.
In Ohio, Rob Portman has a substantial lead over gaffe-ridden Ted Strickland, and Marco Rubio’s entry into the Florida race has made that state more competitive.
“The more the Republican base comes home to Trump, you are going to see Republican incumbents who are underperforming, just like Trump was under-performing in all these states, bump up,” Cillizza said.
Amber Phillips’ article also mentions Senate races in Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia as reasons why the GOP’s chances of holding onto the Senate have improved.
