WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Election Day is now less than a week away, and Oregon Congressman Greg Walden believes his party will hang on to its majority in the U.S. House. "We’re poised to hold the majority and to be ready to govern. We’ve got our whole ‘Better Way’ plan - what we’ll do to fix Obamacare and restore national security and our defense. We’re ready to go. Can’t wait to get this election behind us."
Walden is the Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), which works to help the campaigns of GOP members running for Congress. "I’m sure we’ll drop some seats; I think that was pretty well understood and predicted. We had some retirements in some difficult seats; that I wish had waited another term on somebody else’s watch as NRCC chairman, but they’re on mine." He says those seats lost won't be nearly enough to spell the end of the Republican House majority.
Currently, the GOP has 247 of the 435 seats.
