A Little More
Here's a little more info on last week's interesting tidbit:
Word circulated around Capitol Hill that Mehlman warned that 45 seats could be lost in the House on Nov. 7.
He told me that he did not mention that figure and, in fact, thinks Republicans would retain control of the House if elections were held today.
High-level party sources close to Mehlman estimate the GOP loss could be 25 seats under a worst-case scenario. A 15-seat gain would give the Democrats House control.
They are getting nervous, very nervous. I think without a doubt, if there is a 45 seat loss by the Republicans, it will include Jimbo.
