The House GOP’s campaign arm added 10 new districts to the target list they see as viable pick-ups on Tuesday.
The additions to the list come shortly after census information was released that determined some blue states would lose congressional districts.
“Republicans are on offense all across the country,” NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) said in a statement.
“Every House Democrat is facing an uphill battle having to defend their toxic socialist agenda that prioritizes trillion-dollar tax hikes on the middle class, opens our borders, closes our schools and defunds the police.”
The list includes Democratic Reps. Ami Bera, Jim Costa and Raul Ruiz of California; Marie Newman of Illinois and Dan Kildee of Michigan; Kathleen Rice, Paul Tonko, Joe Morelle and Brian Higgins of New York, and Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania.
Republicans need to pick up just five seats to take back the House, with GOP lawmakers expressing optimism about their odds given historic trends and redistricting falling in their favor.
It was announced last month that Texas is set to add two House seats, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Oregon will each add one seat while Illinois, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan and California will each lose one.
The National Republican Congressional Committee’s original list of 47 Democratic members they planned to target includes: DCCC Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney of New York and Reps. Tom O’Halleran and Ann Kirkpatrick of Arizona; John Garamendi, Jash Harder, Katie Porter and Mike Levin of California; Jahana Hayes of Connecticut; Stephanie Murphy and Charlie Crist of Florida; Lucy McBath and Carolyn Bourdeaux of Georgia; Cindy Axne of Iowa; Sean Casten, Lauren Underwood and Cheri Bustos of Illinois; Sharice Davids of Kansas; Jared Golden of Maine; Elissa Slotkin and Haley Stevens of Michigan; Angie Craig and Dean Phillips of Minnesota; Deborah Ross of North Carolina; Chris Pappas of New Hampshire; Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, Tom Malinowski and Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey; Susie Lee and Steven Horsford of Nevada; Tom Souzzi and Antonio Delgado of New York; Tim Ryan of Ohio; Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader of Oregon; Susan Wild, Matt Cartwright and Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania; Lizzie Fletcher, Vicente Gonzalez, Henry Cuellar, Colin Allred and Filemon Vela of Texas; Elaine Luria and Abigail Spanberger of Virginia; Kim Schrier of Washington, and Ron Kind of Wisconsin.
