Matthews 'Would Bet' on GOP Winning Senate

MSNBC’s “Hardball” anchor Chris Matthews said “it still looks like the republicans can win the senate. I would bet on them winning the senate right now” in a discussion on Tuesday’s “Morning Joe.” 

“It’s all about the timing…will [voters] change their minds in time for the election?” And “a lot of time between now and November and there are senators like Begich and Landrieu who have family root in those states and they could withstand the tsunami if it comes and still keep their seats” he cautioned. 

Nonetheless, Matthews stated he believed there are “a lot of chances for the republicans to win in states like Michigan and Iowa. States you wouldn’t expect them to win in,” and “the president is not going to help much.”
