TV Chatter: Van Hollen On The Network's 'Mistake'

Here's the latest from the networks.

DCCC Chair Chris Van Hollen said projection that GOP will take House is "a mistake."

West Virginia Sen.-elect Joe Manchin (D) on CNN: "We made tremendous strides as a state, and the reason we did that is because we trusted one another...But when I look at what challenges we have ahead of us in Washington, I know it's time to take that fight there."

MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "I think Manchin will be one of the Democratic stars coming out of tonight. West Virginia will be very important in the next presidential election."

RNC Chairman Michael Steele on House pickups: "I think we're going to see something in the 50's and 60's. My number's around 55, but what do I know? I'm just the chairman."

Steele on GOPers saying they'll win despite of him, rather than because of him: "Well, that's just foolishness. Look we provided the ground game ... and I'm sure (those candidates) used those RNC victory centers. ... I think all of that silly talk, I think all of the people who talk like that need to check themselves and focus on Republicans being unified and victorious tonight and everything else will take care of itself."

Steele, on the result the American people will feel from the GOP victory: "I don't know what the leadership is planning, but what I'm saying is the tone is gonna be different. The tone is gonna be much more tuned in to what the people have been saying."

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.): on the GOP's top goal: "Let's extend those tax cuts, and we also have to repeal the health care bill. This isn't a political divide in this country, this truly is an ideological divide."
