Republicans Reveal the Democrat-Held Seats on Their 2024 Radar

Republicans Reveal the Democrat-Held Seats on Their 2024 Radar

The Republicans only have a four-seat majority. The party wants to add to its majority.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) revealed 37 Democrat-held seats on its radar in 2024, including two open seats held by Democrats.

The Republicans only have a four-seat majority:

“Republicans are in the majority and on offense. We will grow our House majority by building strong campaigns around talented recruits in these districts who can communicate the dangers of Democrats’ extreme agenda,” NRCC Chairman Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) said in a statement. “These House Democrats should be shaking in their boots.”

Reps. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) and Katie Porter (D-CA) will leave their seats to run for the Senate.

The Republicans came close to unseating Porter last November. Many on the list only beat their Republican opponent by “less than 1 percentage point.”

The Cook Political Report changed Slotkin’s seat to Toss-Up after she announced her run for the Senate:

As widely expected, three-term Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin launched her bid for Michigan’s open Senate seat on Monday, moving her highly competitive 7th CD in the Lansing area to the top of Republicans’ takeover target board. In 2020, President Biden carried the 7th CD by a single point, 50%-49%. In 2022, Slotkin turned back GOP Army veteran and state Sen. Tom Barrett 52%-46% after outspending him by a massive $11.3 million to $2.7 million.

This was the site of the third-most expensive House race in the country in 2022: including outside groups, all parties involved spent $40.8 million in the Lansing and Detroit markets. Democrats will need to spend heavily again here if they want to reclaim the chamber in 2024.

The NRCC spent a lot of money on 19 seats on the list, but the Democrats won only by “a few thousand votes.”

However, the NRCC included a few Democrats who by over 12% points: California Rep. Josh Harder, Florida Rep. Darren Soto, and North Carolina Rep. Jeff Jackson.

Last year should have been the biggest gains in history by the party out of power during the midterm of an unpopular president presiding over historic inflation, sky high energy prices, and screwing up foreign policy to the point of a world war.

Yet that yielded only a four seat majority? What are the Republicans banking on to get them more of a majority that last year? Apparently, they either know that ballot fraud is the reason Democrats stemmed the tide last year and are playing purposeful ignorance… or they are just plain stupid.

    gonzotx in reply to George S. | March 13, 2023 at 5:45 pm

    Absolutely stupid…. as is ANYONE who does not recognize that the Democrats have stolen election after election after election

    Right in front of our faces…. And they are all in on it, media, OT, alphabet agencies, globalist , RINOS

    I mean really, how does an overflowing toilet cause 5 states to stop voting and a President who has more votes than anyone EVER, loses… such BS

    They stole Nixons Presidency in 1960 and then they stole it once again once he was in…

    And I was a flaming liberal when Nixon got screwed and very young, yet I knew it was horrible and began my awakening…

      Re[publicans can win if Trump stays the hell out of the election. Yeah, the election was stolen from Trump, just like it was stolen from Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, and Stacey Abrams. Losers always say the election was stolen. That’s what losers do. The 2022 election’s great Red Wave was all lost because of Trump. My great awakening was Ronald Reagan, and Trump sure as hell isn’t Ronald Reagan. You need to go back under your rock with your fellow John Birchers.

        Oh jr, you must really be Mike pence in disguise…

        Yeah, abortion had nothing to do with it. The “Twitter Files” show it was all above board. Those mail in ballots surely eradicated fraud. It was just that meanie Trump!

        It’s not about being for Trump, either, but it’s surreal to see how TDS has been extended.

          healthguyfsu in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | March 13, 2023 at 6:47 pm

          The diagnosis of TDS has been extended by all of the hyper-sensitive water carriers from Trump.

          There is a very clear difference between TDS (wanting Trump impeached, brought up on charges of treason, convicted of something/anything, or possibly even assassinated) and conservatives who are critical of Trump’s methods and results.

          You’d actually do well to distinguish the two camps in your mind because it is the difference between people with whom you have zero in common and those with which you have common ground. You need at least one of those two camps to have any shot at winning an election and I think you know which one you have a better shot at. The labeling everything TDS strategy is not going to achieve the ends you hope to attain or even come anywhere close.

          Sorry. Don’t need your advice. Anyone is free to read these attacks on Trump and compare to those with TDS. Hard to distinguish sometime, like the comment above that initiated the reply. Unless you must pretend.

          healthguyfsu in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | March 14, 2023 at 8:23 am

          You’re right. It requires absolutely zero advice to lose another election…good job.

          Speaking of advice, you get what you pay for, especially when it comes from people that act as authorities when they are not.

        Ironclaw in reply to JR. | March 14, 2023 at 1:08 am

        Do you really think that pedophile Biden won honestly?

      Danny in reply to gonzotx. | March 15, 2023 at 9:37 am

      Event 1-Trump loses election

      Event 2-Claim anything Trump is involved in is magically rigged

      Event 3-Lose another election by choosing Trump instead of acknowledging how unpopular he is with the public

      Event 4-Repeat till we are a one party state

      No thanks I would prefer to acknowledge reality and win. Pretending you won elections where the other side won is a recipe for catastrophe.

Subotai Bahadur | March 13, 2023 at 5:37 pm

Between Democrat ballot fraud [which the Republicans will refuse to acknowledge exists let alone oppose], collaboration by key Republicans during the campaign, and whatever state of emergency that the Democrats impose due to banks, Ukraine, energy shortages, etc.; if we have something called an election in 2024, it will probably be the last one.

Awwwwww! There are still Republicans who believe elections matter. Isn’t that just adorable!

    healthguyfsu in reply to Free State Paul. | March 13, 2023 at 6:48 pm

    Not voting is a great option for you….ask any Democrat friend of yours

      Subotai Bahadur in reply to healthguyfsu. | March 13, 2023 at 7:08 pm

      I have every intention of voting, unless it is too blatant a rigged election a’ la the Soviet Union, Do I expect my vote to count given that the Left can manufacture infinite ballots to counter real votes? No. Do I expect that we will be able to vote our way out of this? No.

      Ironclaw in reply to healthguyfsu. | March 14, 2023 at 1:13 am

      Why even waste the effort when the communists will simply steal the election again. We had our last honest election in 2016, that was only because they didn’t manufacture enough fraudulent ballots in advance, and they couldn’t create them fast enough on the fly.

Good luck with that. Until elections are treated as sacred again, for real, they are no more trustworthy than any other broken institution, of which there are now many.

They’re avoiding districts with too many women.

In the months just prior to the 2022 elections Senate Republicans helped Democrats pass gun control, “red flag” laws, an “infrastructure” bill, and the CHIPS act. In an allegedly 50-50 Senate Biden* nominees usually sailed through easily, often with the support of a half dozen or more GOP senators. After the GOP squeaked into power in the House, Mitch McConnell (fresh off of trashing his own party’s Senate candidates, something I had never seen the legislative leader of a political party ever do) helped Democrats shove through a budget deal that severely limited the incoming GOP House’s ability to extract concessions from the Biden* administration. And don’t forget Republican complicity in funneling billions to Ukraine, something that is as popular as the Wuflu with Republican voters.

Nor has the current mob of DC Republicans done much to restore trust in them. Just last week a group of GOP politicians decided that keeping the J6 insurrection hoax alive was the most important issue facing the nation.

No matter how bad the economy is, and no matter who the presidential nominee is in 2024, the GOP Leadership in DC is working hard to insure yet another massive defeat at the polls.

    You forgot McConnell’s RINO gofer, Lindsey Graham, right before the election proposing a ludicrously radical abortion bill that he KNEW had zero chance of passing even in a REPUBLICAN Congress.

    And of course hasn’t mentioned abortion once since it failed. Almost like his only reason for proposing it was to give the Democrats a huge talking point and try and kneecap the Trump candidates.

    Excellent recap. And it only gets worse when Democratic malfeasance is added to the pot. No wonder there was no red wave. Sometimes it seems like playing baseball against a team of 11.

And we’re supposed to believe that The Feckless R’s are intent on winning this time, why?

inspectorudy | March 14, 2023 at 1:25 am

If I was Rona McDaniels I would aim to try and keep the seats the RINOS hold now. Forget about the seats held by the lying Dems. If the Rs couldn’t beat them after the last two years of destroying our country, why do they think the voters will be any wiser? What is missing in our party is leadership by someone with a set, male or female!

I’m glad to see Sharice Davids on the list from KS-03. Hopefully this means they will actually try to unseat her this time. Ever since she defeated then-incumbent Kevin Yoder in the 2018 election, the candidates running against her have been lackluster at best, and haven’t had much local, state, or national party support.

Here in the district, we don’t see or hear from her unless it’s within three months of an election, and then it’s to tell us how independent she is and how she stands up to her party leaders. On almost everything, she votes strictly along party lines unless she’s given the OK to vote against Pelosi for appearances.

At least one of those seats must be noted is hostage to Sarah Palin.
