After Republicans got ran over in the 2018 midterm elections….
They ARE clawing their way back in the lower legislative chamber in Congress…
They are out with a wish list in an effort to try to obtain a majority going into 2023 ….
The House Republicans’ campaign arm on Wednesday revealed the list of 47 House Democrats it will target in the 2022 midterm elections, whose results are likely to be determined largely by the popularity of President Biden.
The National Republican Congressional Committee’s list includes 25 Democrats who were first elected in the Democrats’ 2018 wave election and six incumbents who represent districts that voted for former President Donald J. Trump in November. It includes a wide array of moderate Democrats, including Representatives Abigail Spanberger of Virginia and Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania, who have publicly sparred with the party’s more liberal wing in recent months.
The target list comes three months after House Republicans outperformed pre-election polling and flipped 15 Democratic-held seats in last year’s elections. The party out of power typically does well in midterm elections: Since World War II, the president’s party has lost an average of 27 House seats in midterm elections.
The 2022 elections have the potential to carry a dynamic unseen in previous midterm contests — a referendum on a previous president’s actions. Democrats have already signaled they aim to tie House Republicans to the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol that was incited by Mr. Trump….
House Democrats will have to take some time away from Biden to make sure they keep their majority….
