    Vice President Joe Biden said he was confident the Democrats will win the Senate and also the House, NBC News reported.

    Biden, speaking at the annual House Democratic retreat on Thursday, referenced the Obama administration over the past seven years — including saving the economy, the Iran nuclear a dal and auto sales.

    While he avoided discussion of the race on the Democratic side, he believed the divisive Republican primary gave Democrats a chance for success.

    "And by the way we may be given a gift from the Lord in the presidential race here," Biden said to laughter.
