SHARE Cokie Roberts: GOP has done better job of not electing yahoos

Cokie Roberts says the GOP has a much better chance of winning in the fall, much in part due to doing “a much better job” of not electing “yahoos” in congressional primaries.

The likelihood is the Republicans take the Senate, Roberts said Sunday morning on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos. But there are a lot of things that have to happen, and one of them is Republican primaries have to come out the way Republicans want. Now, some states they can nominate yahoos, and the yahoos will win. But other states, if they nominate yahoos, the Democrat’s likely to win.
