At the White House press room on Tuesday, reporters peppered Press Secretary Josh Earnest with questions about the increasing probability that Republicans will take control of the Senate–and what the White House would do about it.
Earnest stalled, asserting that he would address the situation–but only after the election.
But reporters continued.
Earnest replied that if Democrats retained the Senate, he was “confident that the President will get his fair share of credit for that.”
Finally, Earnest entertained the idea that Democrats would lose the Senate.
