Please understand this for what it is….
A warning to those Republicans on this list that they had better be careful about dancing with their party hardliners against Democrats and Biden….
They ARE representing districts that President Biden would appear to be popular in….
In doing this?
Democrats are trying to neutralise the Republican slim ( NINE Seat) US House Majority….
House Democrats are already sizing up the 2024 election map, circling Republicans in districts that mostly voted for President Biden as their top early targets.
Why it matters: The early primer of the 2024 battleground could influence how certain House Republicans vote and comport themselves, as well as where presidential candidates spend their time and parties focus their resources.
Driving the news: A memo from House Majority PAC, House Democrats’ main super PAC, lists 19 districts that it says are “the path to retaking the Majority.”
- The list includes every district that voted for President Biden in 2020but had been called for Republicans as of Sunday, plus three seats that narrowly went for Trump in 2020.
- Among the targets are some Biden-district GOP incumbents who secured easy victories this year, including Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), who won by nearly 10 points, and Rep. Young Kim (R-Calif.), who won by almost 14 points.
- The list is likely to be expanded — the memo calls the targets “initial, but not comprehensive” — but it shows where Democrats see their best opportunities.
Between the lines: The list signals that a key part of House Democrats’ strategy in 2024 will be to harness the Democratic presidential ticket’s coattails — a luxury the party didn’t have in the 2022 midterms….
This is gonna be the problem for House Republicans…..
“Three weeks before the midterm elections, Kevin McCarthy enraged the pro-Trump House Freedom Caucus after the GOP leader publicly suggested he has yet to see any impeachable offenses committed by the Biden administration,” CNN reports.
“Hardline Republicans – who have been agitating to impeach President Joe Biden or a member of his Cabinet – sounded off on McCarthy in a group chat and expressed deep concern over his comments.”
“But two weeks after the elections, where Republicans underperformed and won a slimmer-than-expected majority that has put McCarthy’s House speaker bid at risk, McCarthy struck a different tone: he called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign, accused him of lying to the American public and not enforcing immigration laws, and threatened to launch an impeachment inquiry if he doesn’t step aside.”
