Former White House spokesman Jay Carney says Democrats are in for a bad election.
"Democrats are, as we've talked about before, going to have a bad election day no matter how you slice it," said Carney. "Republicans will pick up seats in the Senate and the House and may win control of the Senate."
"They need to mobilize their base voters and that's especially true of minority voters and they are playing hardball, too," Carney said, commenting on racially-charged mailers from Democrats in contested states. "Equating support for Stand Your Ground law which is bad policy and bad law doesn't mean you supported the action that took Trayvon Martin's life."
"So that's the kind of rough ad that similar to the one we saw from the Republican. I think we've come to expect that and hopefully a lot of voters as Bill was saying tune it out."
