Dems, GOP seek to define issue for 2014 elections

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a competitive district east of Denver, Democrat Andrew Romanoff is counting on voter anger at a divided and ineffectual Congress to help him unseat three-term Republican Rep. Mike Coffman.

Romanoff quips he "must have blinked and missed" the House's work this past year.

Democrats are determined to make Congress' slim production of fewer than 60 laws and several pieces of unfinished business -- on immigration, gun control and tax reform -- the defining issue in the 2014 midterm election.

Republicans say the driving issue will be President Barack Obama's health care law and its raft of canceled insurance policies, higher premiums and endless problems. Ten months out from the election, congressional officials and political experts give Republicans the edge in keeping the House majority they won in 2010.
