GOP Officials Brace for Loss Of Seven to 30 House Seats
Pray it's a blow out!
I would hate to have to move to New Zealand in my golden years.
GOP Officials Brace for Loss Of Seven to 30 House Seats - washingtonpost.com:
Republican campaign officials said yesterday that they expect to lose at least seven House seats and as many as 30 in the Nov. 7 midterm elections, as a result of sustained violence in Iraq and the page scandal involving former GOP representative Mark Foley.
Democrats need to pick up 15 seats in the election to take back control of the House after more than a decade of GOP leadership. Two weeks of virtually nonstop controversy over President Bush's war policy and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert's handling of the page scandal have forced party leaders to recalculate their vulnerability and placed a growing number of Republican incumbents and open seats at much greater risk.
