"Don't tell Chris Shays I said that."
---Rep. Roy Blunt, on a possible strategy in 2008 to pick up enough seats to take back control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Blunt suggested to CQ Politics the G.O.P. could pick up 24 swing district seats held currently by Democrats, without retaining eight of their own to regain the majority. Shays is consistently one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country due to his mixed district. It should be noted Blunt said this statement with a laugh, as reported by CQ.
