DWS: Dems Will Hold the Senate

With the midterm elections just weeks away, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz seemed confident during her appearance on “Fox News Sunday” that Democrats will keep the Senate.

“We are going to hold the Senate,” the Florida lawmaker said. “The president is not on the ballot.”

“Republicans are desperate to put him on the ballot because they’re trying to turn away from their own terrible record,” she added.

She made her prediction amid a majority of polls that give Republicans at least a 60 percent chance of retaking the upper chamber, including a Washington Post forecast that gives the GOP a 93 percent chance.

Republicans need to win a net total of six seats to take the Senate.

Wasserman-Schultz also argued Democrats will keep control of the chamber because Republicans have let down Americas by taking away their health care and opposing minimum-wage increases.

While DWS is correct that Obama is not on the ballot, his policies certainly are—every single one, in fact.

“The one question that voters are going to ask themselves, Chris, is who has my back?” Wasserman Schultz said to host Chris Wallace.

“The President hasn't had anybody's back,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus countered. “He [hasn’t] even had your back."

Ouch.
