Sean Spicer, the President’s former press secretary, made a bold prediction as to the midterms. The Washington Examiner reports:
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer predicted Monday that Republicans will keep a “slim” House majority after Tuesday’s election, bucking the trend of most analysts who say Democrats will take control.
“I think we’ve got a greater and greater chance of keeping the House,” Spicer said on Fox News. “It may be slim, but I feel good about it.”
He said later the GOP would only be left with a “narrow” majority of between one and three seats.
Most election watchers say Republicans have a less than 20 percent chance of keeping the House, and that Democrats could win as many as 40 seats or more.
The reality of it is that many races in the nation are tossups, and turnout will be key to determine winners.
