– “The Senate is important. It’s very critical and it’s always tough to hold the Senate, but I think we’re doing everything we can do to that…Our candidates are good in the battleground states that they’re in, and that’s the key — having candidates that are in tune with their states and that are unique to their states so you can win in a tough environment, you win in a presidential year, which is always harder because when turnout is through the roof, it’s always a little bit more unpredictable, But I expect we hold the House, hold the Senate and then it’s going to be a tight race at the top of the ticket.”
– “I still think we’ll have a (presidential) nominee by mid-April. Just the way that the rules work, I think that’s where we are going to be. And then we will be off to the races…We have a number of candidates. I mean, who’s to say who’s going to drop out or when? But obviously we’re not going to have that many candidates through February and March, I think that’s a safe thing for me to say.”
– “Now obviously if this thing (the GOP presidential race) goes on beyond the middle of March, end of march, we’ll have to look at that and potentially add (more debates) here or there but it depends how far this thing goes.”
