Crapo Sees Strong Possibility of Split Congress, Minnick Sees Opportunity for Collaboration


Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick and Republican Sen. Mike Crapo are in agreement (sort of) in their outlook on the midterm House elections.

Crapo, in an interview with the Magic Valley's Time News, said he sees a Republican majority a strong possibility in the House, "putting Republican at the table to negotiate. Things like the welfare reform were accomplished last time [the House and Senate were split during the Clinton administration] and I think good things will happen."

"Clearly it's no secret that both parties are battling for control," Minnick campaign spokesman John Foster told Citydesk. "Walt does wholeheartedly agree with Sen. Crapo's prediction that the most likely outcome of the election ... will be more collaboration and consensus-driven legislation."
