Republicans Release 2024 Congressional Targets 

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released a list of 37 congressional seats held by Democrats that they plan on targeting and flipping to Republican seats in 2024. With Republicans holding a thin majority of only four seats in the House, the NRCC is looking to expand its majority to ensure the GOP agenda will not be held up. NRCC Chairman Richard Hudson said, “Republicans are in the majority and on offense. We will grow our House majority by building strong campaigns around talented recruits in these districts who can communicate the dangers of Democrats’ extreme agenda.” Notable targets include Pat Ryan (NY), Abigail Spanberger (VA), and Susie Lee (NV).

POLITICO: Republicans release top targets of Democratic-held House seats in 2024

By Brittany Gibson; March 13, 2023

The National Republican Congressional Committee will target 37 Democratic seats — sending the message that they are looking to expand their majority in 2024 rather than play defense.

The target list, which was shared first with POLITICO, includes 35 incumbents and two open seats that are currently held by Reps. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) and Katie Porter (D-Calif.) who are both retiring to run for Senate. Several of the targets include members who won last cycle with less than 1 percentage point.

Republicans hold the slimmest House majority in modern history — just four seats. Though their caucus also holds a vocal minority that has threatened to halt the GOP’s legislative business — as they did with the prolonged vote for House speaker.

“Republicans are in the majority and on offense. We will grow our House majority by building strong campaigns around talented recruits in these districts who can communicate the dangers of Democrats’ extreme agenda,” NRCC Chairman Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) said in a statement. “These House Democrats should be shaking in their boots.”

The list features 19 Democrats who won despite the NRCC spending heavily against them last cycle, including Reps. Yadira Caraveo of Colorado, Gabriel Vasquez of New Mexico and Pat Ryan of New York, according to FEC reports. Each of them won by just a few thousand votes. Several races the NRCC is targeting this time around were among the most expensive in terms of outside spending in 2022.

Reviewing spending for 2022 from those on the NRCC list, Slotkin’s 7th District in Michigan attracted the most money from outside groups from both parties during the general election, followed by Reps. Susie Lee, of Nevada’s 3rd District, Abigail Spanberger, of Virginia’s 7th, and Angie Craig, of Minnesota’s 2nd. All of those races featured more than $20 million of spending from outside groups, according to OpenSecrets.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released its own list of most vulnerable members last Friday. The NRCC is targeting all but one of the members on the DCCC’s list and has added Reps. Josh Harder of California, Darren Soto of Florida and Jeff Jackson of North Carolina, each of whom won by more than 12 points. Reps. Dina Titus of Nevada, Val Hoyle of Oregon, Seth Magaziner of Rhode Island and Vicente Gonzalez of Texas, who each won by single digits, are also on the list.
