McConnell: 50-50 chance of gaining senate majority

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell discussed on Sunday the odds of the GOP winning the senate in 2012 and addressed senate races in Massachusetts and Virginia saying, “we expect to win them both.”

Crowley: Sitting here today and looking at the landscape, do you believe you will be the majority leader next year?

MCCONNELL: 50-50. I think it is going to be a very close, competitive election. There are a number of places where we have opportunities for pickups, not many places where we have much chance of losing a seat. I think at the end of the day, we will have a very narrow Senate one way or the other.
