White House says bears part of blame for Senate loss
WASHINGTON Jan 20 (Reuters) - The White House on Wednesday said the administration of President Barack Obama shared part of the blame for his Democratic Party's loss of a crucial Senate race in Massachusetts that cost it a super-majority.
"Everybody bears some responsibility, certainly the White House," Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs told a media briefing.
Republican Scott Brown on Tuesday won election to the U.S. senate that has cost Democrats their 60-seat majority needed to overcome delaying tactics by the Republican opposition to Obama's legislative reform agenda.
