Obama spokesman says Democrats could lose House
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman says it’s possible that Democrats could lose their majority in the House this fall.
Press secretary Robert Gibbs says there’s no doubt that enough seats are in play for Republicans to take control. Gibbs says the outcome of the fall vote will depend on whether Democrats wage strong campaigns.
Gibbs is echoing points that Obama has made political fundraisers this summer — that GOP apologies to oil giant BP and complaints about tighter Wall Street rules show how Republicans would govern.
