Trump privately tells donors it would be ‘very tough’ for GOP to hold Senate - The Washington Post

President Trump privately told donors this past week that it will be “very tough” for Republicans to keep control of the Senate in the upcoming election because some of the party’s senators are candidates he cannot support.

The Senate is very tough,” Trump said at a fundraiser Thursday at the Nashville Marriott, according to an attendee.

The president — in a sentiment not shared by many of his party’s top officials and strategists — said he instead thinks the Republicans “are going to take back the House.” And many strategists involved in Senate races say the party’s chances at keeping the chamber are undermined by the president’s unscripted, divisive rhetoric and his low poll numbers in key states.

Senate Republicans have known for days that the probability of the party losing control of the upper chamber has increased drastically, with even Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pegging his bid to keep power as “50-50” in a recent radio interview.

Jesse Hunt, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, pushed back on the notion that Trump doesn’t support some Senate Republicans.

“The Republican-led Senate and President Trump have had a great partnership over the last four years, highlighted by the fact the chamber is poised to confirm a third Trump Supreme Count nominee in the coming days,” Hunt said Saturday.

“Nancy Pelosi has turned the House into a liberal nightmare and if Chuck Schumer gets control of the Senate, he’ll do the same thing.”.

Democrats need to gain three seats if Biden wins the presidency to claim Senate control.

The Republican Party’s donors have rallied in some places to try to save the Senate, fearful of a Democratic Party that controls the House, Senate and White House.

With Democrats vastly outraising their GOP incumbents across the nation, its seems an increasingly tough battle for Republicans.

Even a late-breaking scandal enveloping one Democratic candidate, Cal Cunningham, has not doomed his candidacy; most North Carolina voters view the seat as the tipping point for Senate control.

“I think Tillis is getting back in this one because his opponent ended up having more affairs than you’re allowed to have at one time,” Trump said.

Republicans and Democrats expect the Republican to win the seat in the GOP-leaning state.

Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) who in a call with constituents said Trump mistreats women, flirts with White supremacy and secretly mocks evangelicals.

Rather, the House GOP conference is bracing for a possible internal fight over leadership if they lose seats to Democrats.

At the fundraiser, Trump lamented that he could not send federal forces into some of the cities that were racked by violence and protests this summer.

We’re going to find more and more emergencies,” Trump said.

Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee chairman who led the impeachment investigation of Trump, and the obsession from some Democrats with discussing Russian disinformation — comments that closely aligned with what he has said recently at public rallies.

In the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll, Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump, with 54 percent of likely voters favoring him vs.

42 percent for Trump?
