US House Speaker Boehner urges Democrats to work to regain majority
Washington, April 24 (ANI): House of |Representatives Speaker John Boehner believes that the Democrats have a very good chance of dominating Congressional elections this year, but warned party leaders and activists hoping to secure a seat that would have to work hard to secure a win.
Fox News quoted Boehner, as saying: "There's a one-in-three chance we could lose. I'm being myself, frank. We've got a big challenge, and we've got work to do."
Democrats face a battle in their efforts to take back the House, where Republicans hold a 242-190-seat advantage.
In total, 33 Senate seats are in play this year, with 23 currently held by Democrats and 10 held by Republicans. Ten of those 33 seats are open-again, the state of play is in the Republicans' favor, with seven held by Democrats and three held by Republicans.
Currently, the Democrats are clinging to a fragile six-vote majority. In the House, a flurry of redistricting decisions appears to be working as of late in the Democrats' favor, though the chaotic process has stung both parties repeatedly.
The Democrats need 25 seats in the House to regain the majority-a very steep climb in a year when neither party is particularly popular.
The Democrats are thought to have far more safe seats than Republicans going into November.
Earlier this year, the Rothenberg Political Report projected a Democratic pick-up of between five and 12 seats. (ANI)
