Boehner Predicts 33% Chance GOP Loses House

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told Fox News that his party faces a "real challenge" in holding on to its majority in the House.

Said Boehner: "We have 50 of our members in tough races, 89 freshmen running for their first reelections and we have 32 districts that are in states where there is no presidential campaign going to be run, no big Senate race and we call these orphan districts. You take 18 of them, California, Illinois and New York, where you know we're not likely to do well at the top of the ticket and those districts are frankly pretty vulnerable."

He added: "I would say that there is a two in three chance that we win control of the House again but there's a one in three chance that we could lose and I'm being myself, frank. We've got a big challenge and we've got work to do."
