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)
