Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, conceded Monday that his party faces a “real challenge” in holding on to its majority, saying that there is a one in three chance the GOP could lose their majority rule, reports The Hill.

Boehner, in an interview with Fox News, said that he believes the Republican party will maintain control of the House, but only by the skin of their teeth.

“I would say that there is a 2-in-3 chance that we win control of the House again, but there’s a 1-in-3 chance that we could lose and I’m being myself, frank. We’ve got a big challenge and we’ve got work to do,” he said.
