Republicans are targeting several House seats they lost to Democrats in New Jersey last year, as they look to come back after losing nearly all of their seats in the state.

Republicans lost four New Jersey House seats in 2018 as voters angry with President Trump and former Gov. Chris Christie (R) punished their party. The GOP had already lost a seat in the state in 2016.

The article goes on to state the following:

In 2020, the GOP thinks it has a decent chance of winning back three of those seats – if things break the right way. But it won’t be easy, and Democrats are optimistic that they’ll hold all of the seats.

New Jersey has long voted for Democrats for president and senator, but the state has typically been more mixed in House and state-level races.

However, Republicans have fared poorly in recent congressional elections. While the GOP held six of the state’s 12 House seats before the 2016 elections, they now only hold one of them.

Wins in New Jersey could help Republicans take back the House. Depending on the outcome of a special election in North Carolina, Republicans will need to have a net gain of 18 or 19 seats to win the chamber in 2020.
