Top Republican Barbour: GOP unlikely to take Senate

Former Mississipi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) sounded a pessimistic note on whether the GOP will retake the Senate, something that seemed highly likely earlier this year.

“Close,” he said when asked during CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning when asked about whether the GOP will win control.

When pressed by CNN’s Candy Crowley if that meant the GOP would fall short, he added “Means no cigar.”
