Given the bombastic nature of President Donald Trump, the poignancy of VP Mike Pence tends to get lost in the ether a bit.
Throughout the first two years of this unconventional administration, President Trump has been a daily headline. Perhaps this comes from his entertainment background, or, possibly, this is simply due to the realities of his unorthodox rise to power. In either case, there hasn’t been a whole lot of room for Vice President Mike Pence to get a word in edgewise.
In a rare bit of grandstanding, our #2 guy did make a bold prediction today on the subject of the midterm elections.
Vice President Pence maintained in an interview with Hill.TV on Friday that Republicans will keep control of the House in next week’s midterm elections.
“I think we’re going to expand our majority in the United States Senate, and I think we’re going to hold our Republican majority in the House of Representatives,” Pence told Hill.TV’s Buck Sexton.
“But that being said, there is certainly common ground in areas that we can work that the president has laid out,” Pence added when asked about working with Democrats if they win the House, citing issues like trade and infrastructure.
“I think there’s a broad range of areas that we’ll be able to work with that Democrat minority in the House and the Senate, and we’ll continue to reach out to do that.”
The comments from Pence, a former six-term House member, came shortly after President Trump acknowledged earlier Friday that Republicans could end up losing control of the lower chamber in Tuesday’s midterms.
With these midterm elections carrying the extra gravity of a possible impeachment fight for the Commander in Chief, republicans can only hope that Pence is making an astute prediction.
