Obama spokesman says Democrats could lose House

WASHINGTON (AP), Jul 11 - President Barack Obama's chief spokesman says it's possible that Democrats could lose their majority in the House of Representatives in the November election.
Press secretary Robert Gibbs says there's no doubt that enough seats are in play for Republicans to take control. Gibbs says the outcome of the fall vote will depend on whether Democrats wage strong campaigns.
Gibbs is echoing points that Obama has made at political fundraisers this summer - that apologies by some Republicans to oil giant BP and complaints about tighter Wall Street rules show how they would govern.
Gibbs appeared Sunday on NBC television's ``Meet the Press.''
