On Thursday, Biden landed in New York to campaign for New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D-Ny.), who is facing a surprisingly difficult challenge from Republican Lee Zeldin for her re-election bid.
Biden was greeted by Hochul and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-Ny.) as he exited the plane.
Schumer gave Biden a brief update on the Senate races that could decide which party holds the Senate Majority come January of 2023.
In the key state of Nevada, Schumer said that Democrats are “picking up steam”.
He updated Biden on the state of the Pennsylvania Senate race with a far less optimistic outlook.

He admitted to the President on a hot mic that Fetterman’s debate performance likely hurt his chances at winning, but added the caveat that it “didn’t hurt us too much.”
“It looks like the debate didn’t hurt us too much in Pennsylvania as of today,” Schumer, D-N.Y., told President Biden on the tarmac during Biden’s trip to New York on Thursday. “So that’s good.”
Schumer made multiple other shocking admission about key races throughout the country.
He admitted to Biden that Democrats were “going down” in the state of Georgia where Trump-endorsed Herschel Walker is facing off against incumbent Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.)
He seemed dismayed that Georgians would vote for Walker over Warnock.
“The state where we’re going down, though, is Georgia. It’s hard to believe that they will go for Herschel Walker,” Schumer said.
He also appeared to refer to another seat where Democrats are in danger, though the name of the Democratic candidate in danger was not specified.
“That seat, we’re in danger in that seat,” Schumer said. “We’ll see.”
