On CNN’s Sunday broadcast of “State of the Union,” former White House press secretary acknowledged that this fall’s midterm elections aren’t shaping up to be a positive for the Democratic Party.
“It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition,” Carney said. “The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party. You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats except for barely holding onto the Senate.”
