The 2014 midterm elections will determine which party controls the United States Congress. And while the GOP is confident it can become the majority party in both chambers, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn’t convinced her party can win back the House.
Rep. Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) sat down with House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and POLITICO’S Jake Sherman for a post-mortem of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, which occurred Tuesday night. As talk turned from the president’s annual address to the 2014 midterm elections and who would take control of Congress come 2015, McCarthy said he was confident the GOP would retain control of the House and even become the majority party of the Senate. Wasserman Schultz, however, didn’t exude the same confidence.
“Yes, I do think in 2015, I’m not going to confidently predict that Democrats will take the House back, but what I will predict is that we’re going to pick up seats,” Wasserman Schultz said.
McCarthy, to the contrary, was confident the Republican Party would maintain control of the House of Representatives, even suggesting the GOP would win more seats.
