NRCC Announces 47 Offensive Pick-Up Opportunities for 2022 Cycle

February 10, 2021

The NRCC today announced its initial offensive pick-up opportunities for the 2022 cycle. These 47 seats are currently held by vulnerable Democrats and represent prime pick-up opportunities for Republicans.  

“We are just a few weeks into the Biden Administration and Americans are already seeing the job-killing initiatives House Democrats support,” said NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer. “We will relentlessly hold House Democrats accountable for their socialist agenda and ensure voters understand the damaging impact policies like defunding the police, government-run health care and ending the Keystone XL Pipeline will have on Americans’ everyday lives.  

“House Republicans start the cycle just five seats short of a majority and are prepared to build on our 2020 successes to deliver a lasting Republican majority in the House. We will stay laser-focused on recruiting talented and diverse candidates, aggressively highlighting Democrats’ socialist agenda and raising enough resources to win.”  

The 47 offensive opportunities include 29 Battleground Democrats where President Biden lost the district or where the 2020 presidential or congressional margin was within 5%. Next, there are 8 Underperforming Democrats, who won by less than 10% and underperformed the presidential ballot margin. Finally, there are 10 Redistricting Watch Democrats, who currently represent districts in states gaining or losing seats during the reapportionment, or represent districts in states that have a redistricting commission.
