Mitch McConnell: Close Senate Races Like ‘A Knife Fight in an Alley’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell talked about the close Senate races today in terms of a “knife fight.”

“We know this is going to be a very challenging election on the Senate side,” he said in Louisville today, before listing a number of close races across the country.

He pointed to the Senate races in: Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Montana, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia, and Florida.

“All of ’em too close to call,” McConnell said, “and every one of ’em like a knife fight in an alley. I mean, just a brawl in every one of those places.”

Per NBC News, McConnell also made a mention of Ted Cruz‘s Senate race against Beto O’Rourke:

“I think Ted’s got a competitive race, by all indications. We certainly expect to win in Texas, but I think he does have a competitive race,” he said.

Recently Trump administration official Mick Mulvaney, per multiple reports, said there’s a “very real possibility” Cruz loses his race.
