WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden predicts Democrats will lose seats in the Senate but retain a 52-48 majority.
He says he foresees Democratic victories in closely contested races in Alaska, North Carolina, New Hampshire and Georgia and a runoff election in Louisiana.
He did not mention Colorado and Iowa, two other neck-and-neck races. Biden indicated Kansas independent Greg Orman could beat Republican Sen. Pat Roberts. He says Orman “will be with us,” though Orman has not said whether he would join Republicans or Democrats in the Senate.
Biden spoke Tuesday on the “Chaz and AJ” radio show, airing on Connecticut stations WPLR, WDRC and WFOX.
Biden was pitching an Election Day get-out-the-vote message on talk radio in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and in the Quad Cities on the Iowa and Illinois border.
