“People want to see Congress work. They have seen gridlock. They have seen the fact that the Republicans are a deeply divided party within themselves. They can't pass a highway bill that Speaker Boehner made his principle priority over the last two months. So I think when the Speaker is saying one-in-three [chance of losing the House], you can bet that he's trying to low ball that. He knows he has a big challenge. He does have a big challenge. We have some 64 districts in which we have very, very good challengers. Many of those they have outraised incumbent Republicans. They are doing well in the polls. I think we're going to take back the House. I think the American people are going to want to see change from gridlock.”
