Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) was the last incumbent senator to survive a Tea Party challenge, a sign he says bodes well for the GOP’s hopes of flipping the Senate.

“I think it helps that all of us Republican incumbents were renominated because that sends the signal that we’re serious about governing,” Alexander told The Hill Friday afternoon after he cruised to a nine-point victory over state Rep. Joe Carr (R) on Thursday evening.

Alexander put GOP chances of winning the upper chamber at 55 to 60 percent, pointing to the quality of the challengers as the key to victory.
