Seats off the map

April 6, 2021

The DCCC released its very small (22 seats) target list this morning, and it’s clear that Democrats’ socialist agenda has taken seats off the map.

A few noteworthy items:

  • Republicans took back energy-producing districts in Oklahoma (OK-05) and New Mexico (NM-02) last cycle. Democrats are not targeting these districts thanks to Joe Biden’s anti-energy agenda.   
  • The over-hyped “Texodus” is dead. Last cycle the Democrats targeted 10 seats in Texas. This cycle they are targeting two.
  • Last cycle NJ-02 was a “top-target” for the DCCC. This cycle it’s not even on the map!

NRCC Comment: “With this list, the DCCC confirmed what we already knew: Democrats are on defense because they have to defend a toxic socialist agenda that raises taxes, opens borders, closes schools, and kills jobs.” – NRCC Spokesman Mike Berg
