Feb 28, 2012 6:15pm

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Sen. John Cornyn said today that despite the retirement of Sen. Olympia Snowe,  Republicans remain “well-positioned to win back a Senate majority in November.”

“Maine has a proud history of electing independent leaders, including a Republican governor in 2010, and while this will be a key battleground in the fall, I am confident it will remain in Republican hands,” Cornyn said.

The full statement from the NRSC chairman reads:

“Olympia Snowe has served her beloved state of Maine, and our country, with strong principles and great distinction for many years. As both a friend and a colleague, she will be missed, and I wish both her and her husband Jock all the best as they embark on the next chapter in careers dedicated to public service.

“While I would never underestimate the fight ahead in defending any open Senate seat, Republicans remain well-positioned to win back a Senate majority in November. Maine has a proud history of electing independent leaders, including a Republican Governor in 2010, and while this will be a key battleground in the Fall, I am confident it will remain in Republican hands.”
