Dems Hope Battle Within GOP Will Help Them Take Back House

Hope to capitalize on Republican obstructionism


Democrats are banking that a chaotic autumn will convince voters the GOP is damaging the economy and help their party pick up House seats in 2014.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has been pushing the chaos theme, arguing House Republicans are willing to shut down the government and injure the nation's credit in order to win ideological battles in Washington.
