Sen. Cory Booker Says Democrats Have A 'Strong Pathway' To Keep Control Of The Senate

Election day is tomorrow.

Despite recent polls, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker is confident Democrats will maintain control of the U.S. Senate.

During a Nov. 6 interview on ABC's This Week, Booker said, "The party in the White House usually loses during midterms, but the reality is we still have a very strong pathway — not just to keeping the Senate but really picking up seats in Pennsylvania and in places like Wisconsin and North Carolina. This election still is in the ballots. And the reality is we're bucking what are usual trends."

He added, "This is the party that made sure we did things to lower prescription drug costs and health care costs. That this is the party at the end of the day that's trying to protect fundamental freedoms like the right to control your own body. So I think this a tough elections season ... but I still see a pathway for us to maintain control of the Senate."
