On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer spoke with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in Washington.

This week, Tom brought up an interesting scenario for Neugebauer to consider. In the event that the Electoral College goes into a tie, the House of Representatives would elect the president and the Senate would elect the vice-president, meaning that there is a chance that Joe Biden could be serving at Mitt Romney's vice-president if elected. Neugebauer said it wouldn't be the first time a president and vice-president from different parties served together in the White House, but he wouldn't expect it to be a smooth administration.

 

"One of the things that I think is very evident to the American people right is that thye are hungering for leadership. And they realize that we've got some very important decisions to make, some changes in the way we do business, of stopping this runaway spending and borrowing. And so, a divided executive branch might not necessarily be conducive to that."

Neugebauer added that it probably wouldn't come down to the scenario, since the presidential race is not as close as many people think it is.

Neugebauer also talked about Mitt Romney receiving an endorsement for the Des Moines Register, which has traditionally endorsed Democrats. He said this is a great sign for the Romney campaign, and believes this indicates more independent voters are starting to break towards Romney.
