President Biden dismissed concerns about the tightening gubernatorial race in Virginia on Tuesday, telling reporters: “We’re going to win.”

During a press conference Biden held before departing the U.K.’s climate summit in Glasgow, a reporter noted that Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe is struggling in Virginia, where Biden defeated Donald Trump by ten points, and asked the president if he believes McAuliffe’s struggles are a “rebuke” of his presidency and if it could be a harbinger for losses to come in the midterms next year. 

“We’re going to win,” Biden said. “I think we’re going to win.”

“We knew from the beginning this is going to be a tight race and it is tight,” he added. “It’s going to get down to turnout.”

He also expressed confidence that Democrats will win the New Jersey gubernatorial election, in which Democratic incumbent Phil Murphy is facing off against Jack Ciattarelli, a former Assembly member and small businessman. If Murphy wins, he will become the first Democrat to be reelected as the state’s governor in 44 years.
