Speaker of the House John Boehner seems to think so. In an interview with Fox News airing today – Speaker Boehner said Republicans are facing a “real challenge” in the upcoming election and that there’s a “1-in-3” chance that Republicans could lose control of the House. Majority Leader Eric Cantor – who’s been a thorn in Boehner’s side for the last year was more optimistic on the issue – saying he’s, “very confident” that Republicans will add to their majority in the House in November.
Looking at what’s happening on a state-level, Republicans should be worried. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is facing a recall. In Ohio – Republicans watched their radical anti-union law repealed by voters. And in Michigan, a recall effort has begun against Republican Governor Rick Snyder. So if the voters’ remorse at the state-level is any indication of what might happen at the federal level – Speaker Boehner has good reason to be worried.
