Boehner: Republicans Have 50/50 Shot at Keeping the House


Friday on NBC’s “Today,” former Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said Republicans have a “50/50” chance of holding control of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018. Partial transcript as follows: GUTHRIE: Are you worried about Republicans losing control of the House? You do that math. BOEHNER: Once you have a change of presidents, the party out of power always gains seats. It’s gone on for well over 100 years. GUTHRIE: There is gaining seats and there is losing control. BOEHNER: There is. And frankly, it’s a 50/50 proposition. Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
