Many Democrats are still bullish, or at least hopeful, that they can hold onto their tenuous majority in the U.S. Senate this year.

But the U.S. House is a different story, where — already facing national political headwinds — Democrats would need to net 17 seats to retake control there.

“I think we are still in a really neck-and-neck situation in terms of whether or not we see pick-ups for Democrats or pick-ups for Republicans,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who chairs the Democratic National Committee, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “This is an election where in every single competitive race, it’s coming down to the wire.”

But is there a chance for Democrats to pick up the House? she was asked.

“I think the best thing that I [could] predict is that we have an opportunity to pick up seats and beyond that, I wouldn’t make any other predictions,” the Florida Democrat said.
