Wuck? Boehner Tosses Out New, High Number of Possible Republican Pick-Ups: One Hundred

Swingin' for the fences, as far as speculation:

House Republicans could win 100 or more seats in this fall's elections, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Friday.


Boehner said he believes there is no seat that the GOP cannot win during this election cycle, judging by Sen. Scott Brown's (R) improbable win in January's special election in Massachusetts.

Reflecting Republican optimism that they can win back control of the House this fall, Boehner said 2010 has the widest playing field for Republicans in a while.

"Let me remind you that Scott Brown won the Ted Kennedy Senate seat in Massachusetts," Boehner said during an appearance on National Public Radio. "If Scott Brown can win in America, there isn't a seat in America that Republicans can't win."

When pressed for a number, Boehner said he believed the GOP could win as many as 100 seats in this fall's elections.

"At least 100 seats," Boehner said when asked how wide the playing field for districts is. "I do," the top House Republican answered when asked if he thinks there are 100 seats in the U.S. "that could change hands."

I suppose it's a good idea to expand the field of seats in contention as wide as possible.

When the time rolls around, I'm going to get a list of the second thirty most competive seats around and promote donations there, because I figure 1-30 will be widely publicized already and besides, might turn out to be gimmes/races where too much money is flowing in. 31-60 sounds more important to me.
