Cantor: Republicans Will Take the Senate This Year
Eric Cantor predicts GOP will pick up Senate in November (The Daily Caller)
House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor expressed confidence in his party’s prospects this November, claiming Obamacare and a tottering economy will help Republicans maintain the House and take control of the Senate.
The Virginia congressman spoke with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo during her inaugural show Monday morning. “There are 36 U.S. Senate seats up for election in 2014 — 15 GOP, 21 Dems,” Bartiromo explained. “What are you expecting this year? How many seats can you guys take in the Senate?”
“Well first of all, with the elections upcoming I think we’ve got to remember most people in the country aren’t so focused on that,” Cantor began. “They’re focused on their own difficulties right now in getting through the month and making sure their job is there, and we want to stay focused on those issues.”
