Ryan foresees only small Democratic losses in the House


U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-17th, says his political party will lose seats in the U.S. House and Senate in the November general election, but not enough for Republicans to control either legislative body.

“In reality we probably have a few seats [in the House] we shouldn’t have anyway,” Ryan of Niles said during a meeting today with The Vindicator editorial board.

“We got them from the backlash of [the presidency of] George Bush, and the Barack [Obama presidential] election,” he added. “I don’t see us losing a lot of seats. We won’t lose the House.”

Democrats have a 253-177 majority over Republicans in the U.S. House with 5 vacancies.
