In 2008, the GOP is 16 seats away from regaining a House majority.
Rep. Ric Keller (R) from Florida:
Rep. Ric Keller,R-Fla., one of Bush’s most ardent supporters, said Thursday he would have agreed three years ago with the president’s call for more troops but not now.
“At this late stage, interjecting more young American troops into the crossfire of an Iraqi civil war is simply not the right approach,” Keller told the House. “We are not going to solve an Iraqi political problem with an American military solution.”
He is not in a “safe” GOP seat.
Support him because the GOP needs 218 House seats?
Shun him because he is abandoning President Bush?
