Rep. Ben Ray Lu­jan (D-NM 03), chair of the DCCC, “is con­fid­ent his party will gain seats in the cham­ber next year and that the Re­pub­lic­ans’ health care de­bacle will help Demo­crats get there.”

Lu­jan “de­clined to spe­cify how many seats the party could win, ac­know­ledging that Demo­crats face a ‘tough map’ com­plic­ated by ger­ry­man­der­ing.”

On former con­gres­sion­al staffer Jon Os­soff’s (D) chances in the GA-06 spe­cial elec­tion, Lu­jan said, “Let’s see what hap­pens. Just know that we’re on the ground work­ing day in and day out.” (Roll Call)

GOP SIDE. Con­stitu­ents of Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH 15), the NR­CC chair, held a rally Thursday out­side of a Stivers fun­draiser to protest his lack of town halls. (Colum­bus Un­der­ground)
