The National Republican Congressional Committee unveiled a list of 36 Democratic target districts, one of third of which are seats President Trump won in 2016. “That segment of the list is heavy on blue-collar districts in the Midwest, which Republicans believe will be especially fertile political territory in the Trump era. It includes two Democrats who were not heavily targeted by the GOP in 2016:” Reps. Dave Loebsack (IA 02) and Ron Kind (WI-03).”
It also includes seats the party lost last election including Reps. Stephanie Murphy (FL-07), Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05) and Jacky Rosen (NV-03).
Also on the list: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján’s (NM-03) district and his cousin’s Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01), who will leave Congress in 2018 to run for governor. (Politico)
