McConnell: Dead Even Senate Races Are A “Knife Fight”

NBC News reports:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said today that the Senate races in this year’s midterm elections are going to be “very challenging,” comparing each one to “a knife fight in an alley.”

Speaking to reporters at the Gene Snyder Federal Courthouse in Louisville, Kentucky, McConnell was asked if Republicans will hold onto the majority in Congress. “We know this is going to be a very challenging election,” he said.

McConnell said Senate races were “dead-even” in Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Montana, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia and Florida. “All of them too close to call and every one of them is like a knife fight in an alley,” he said. “It’s just a brawl in every one of those places.”
