WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., reportedly said Monday to a group of Senate Democrats that he thinks his party won’t keep control of the House.
According to a report in Punchbowl News, Schumer said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “in trouble.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed confidence again Wednesday at a press conference that the Democrats would retain the House.
Historically, the party in the White House loses seats in midterm elections.
In 2018, in the middle of former Republican President Donald Trump’s term, the Democrats won control of the House, while Republicans retained control of the Senate.
During former Democratic President Barack Obama’s second term in 2014, Republicans retained the majority in the House and took the majority in the Senate.
