McConnell says GOP has even odds of taking Senate

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., stated in an interview on CNN Sunday that Republicans have a 50-50 chance of regaining the Senate majority in the November elections, as reported by The Hill.

In spite of the oft-repeated references to the "Republican Congress" by the Obama campaign and even many in mainstream media outlets, Republicans have not held the majority in the U.S. Senate since 2006, when a Democratic Party sweep placed Democrats in firm control of both the House and Senate with supermajorities.
