WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Republican leader said Sunday he was confident that a congressional "super committee" tasked with slashing U.S. deficits would reach a deal before a November 23 deadline.

"Yes, I do think that the joint select committee (super committee) will be successful," House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor said in an interview on the "Fox News Sunday" program.
