(NRCC News) – House Republicans should already have a large majority but thanks to the same tricks and chicanery that took place in the 2020 election, the 2022 midterms were almost a big bust for the GOP.
Of no fault of their own, Republicans only managed to squeeze out a slim majority, which we are thankful for as it essentially makes Joe Biden a lame duck. However, Republicans are more motivated than ever to expand their majority in 2024.
The GOP has just released a list of 35 Democrats and two open seats that they plan to heavily target in the 2024 election cycle. The two vacant seats have been left by Democratic Reps. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan and Katie Porter of California, both of which are running for the Senate.
The National Republican Congressional Committee released the target list which includes many Democrats who won very close races in their last elections.
“Republicans are in the majority and on offense. We will grow our House majority by building strong campaigns around talented recruits in these districts who can communicate the dangers of Democrats’ extreme agenda,” Republican Virginia Rep. Richard Hudson, the chairman of the NRCC, said in a statement.
The Daily Caller explains:
“Reps. Yadira Caraveo of Colorado, Gabriel Vasquez of New Mexico and Pat Ryan of New York are among 19 Democrats on the target list who won tight races by less than 1 percentage point that the NRCC fundraised heavily against, according to Politico.
Nevada Rep. Dina Titus, Oregon Rep. Val Hoyle, Rhode Island Rep. Seth Magaziner and Texas Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, who all won their elections by single digits, are also on the list, according to Politico. California Rep. Josh Harder, Florida Rep. Darren Soto and North Carolina Rep. Jeff Jackson won by larger margins of over 12 percentage points, yet are still on the target list.”

Other members on the target list include Mary Peltola of Alaska; Mike Levin of California; Jahana Hayes of Connecticut; Eric Sorensen of Illinois; Frank Mrvan of Indiana; Sharice Davids of Kansas; Jared Golden of Maine; Hillary Scholten and Dan Kildee of Michigan; Angie Craig of Minnesota; Don Davis and Wiley Nickel of North Carolina; Chris Pappas of New Hampshire; Susie Lee and Steven Horsford of Nevada; Greg Landsman, Marcy Kaptur and Emilia Sykes of Ohio; Andrea Salinas of Oregon; Susan Wild, Matt Cartwright and Chris Deluzio of Pennsylvania; Abigail Spanberger of Virginia; and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez and Kim Schrier of Washington.
The focus of the NRCC is to get more Republicans elected to the US House and increasing GOP control. Funding for the NRCC comes from individual donors and then it directs funds to Republican candidates and party leaders.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has not released a list of Republicans they plan to target but on Friday they did release a list of Democrats whose seats are vulnerable. The NRCC is targeting all but one seat on the DCCC’s list and has added several more.
“These House Democrats should be shaking in their boots,” Hudson asserted.
Republicans have the message and solutions Americans want to hear and support. The Democrats are not serving the American people at all, rather they’re serving their own agenda and interests all while enriching themselves.
Americans are sick and tired of this breed of politician. We can only hope that our elections will be fair and free in 2024 but don’t hold your breath.
