House GOP Focuses on Maintaining Midterm Majority


The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has drafted a list of 36 Democratic House seats to focus on during the next two years.

The list targets seats that Republicans feel they can win in the midterm cycle.

Typically, the party of the incumbent president loses House seats during the first two years in office.


“The success of our government depends on Republicans maintaining a strong majority in the House. We owe the American people assurance that the agenda we were elected on — health care reform, a stronger national defense, and more good-paying jobs — is fulfilled,” said NRCC chairman Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio).

“Our strategy will allow us to be competitive in races throughout the country and achieve our overall goal of keeping Republicans in control of the House.”

According to the Hill, the GOP is targeting newly elected Democrats who sit in swing districts including Reps. Jacky Rosen (Nev.), Ruben Kihuen (Nev.), Carol Shea-Porter (N.H.), Josh Gottheimer (N.J.), Tom O’Halleran (Ariz.) and Charlie Crist (Fla.).
