In an interview aired Monday morning on CNN’s “New Day,” Vice President Joe Biden told CNN’s Gloria Borger that he does not believe Republicans will gain control of the Senate following Tuesday’s election.
“First of all, I don’t agree with the oddmakers,” Biden said. “I think we’re going to keep the Senate. I’ve been in 67 races all told and I don’t get the feeling that the oddsmakers are giving.”
“But what if that were to be the case?” Borger asked.
“Well, I don’t think it will change anything in terms of what we’re about,” Biden replied. “We know what we have to get done the last two years, and quite frankly, going into 2016, Republicans have to make a decision, whether they’re in control or not in control, are they going to begin to allow things to happen or are they continue to be obstructionists. I think they’re going to choose to get things done.”
Later on, Borger asked Biden about his own plans for 2016, and whether or not he has decided on a run for the presidency.
“There’s plenty of time to make that decision,” Biden said. “Look, everybody talks about how everything is going to be gone by the summer, I don’t see that at all. I haven’t made up my mind what I’m going to do.”
“It’s not about Hilary?” Borger asked.
“You know me too well,” Biden said. “If I run, I’m confident I will be able to mount a campaign that can be financed, that will be credible and serious.”
