GOP on Track to Take the House
Posted on Oct 26, 2010
With just a week to go before the midterm elections, it’s looking like Republicans are in good shape to take control of the House of Representatives, and it’s a long shot but not completely impossible that they could win big in the Senate, according to Reuters.
A thirst for change in Washington and worries about the stumbling economy appear likely next Tuesday to break Obama’s Democrats’ grip on Congress in a potential rout that would topple House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from power.
With more than 90 Democratic-held seats at risk on Nov. 2 in the 435-member House, independent analysts project Republicans will pick up at least the 39 Democratic seats they need for control.
Nancy Pelosi’s days as speaker of the House could be numbered.
