With about three weeks to go before midterm elections, there are signs that national Democrats are losing hope in their candidate for Kentucky's Senate Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is challenging incumbent Mitch McConnell, with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee pulling out of Kentucky.

The move comes after Grimes refused to tell an editorial board whether or not she voted for President Obama, leading to some negative press.

But there are also signs that Democrats are raising their hopes in Georgia, as Republicans continue to be hopeful about their chances across the country.

ABC News' political director Rick Klein joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss the races.
