The GOP has found the vulnerability of House Democrats, and they are already planning to use it during campaign season for the next round of Congressional elections.
The Republican Party is planning to win back the majority in the House of Representatives in the next election, and has already begun implementing their strategy. The GOP has begun compiling lists of vulnerable Democrats in an effort to exploit their weaknesses in targeted campaign ads.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is setting up a “paid media campaign targeting three House Democrats who could likely face difficult reelections in the 2022 midterms,” according to Fox News.
These three Democrats are Representatives Vicente Gonzalez of Texas, Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania and Ron Kind of Wisconsin, all of whom are being targeted over supporting radical legislation proposed by far-left members of their party.
They aren’t going to stop at just three House Democrats. The NRCC has also released an “Exit List” of 27 vulnerable Democrat representatives, claiming that these lawmakers are likely to either retire or run for a different office.
“These 27 Democrats see the writing on the wall and know they will lose the House majority or lose their election,” the NRCC wrote.
The 27 Democrats on the list include some big names, such as 81 year old Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and far-left radical Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who may challenge Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for his Senate seat.
“House Democrats are running for the exits because they know they’re in for a bruising election cycle which will cost them their jobs and their House majority. They’d rather move on than have to spend another election defending their socialist agenda that will strip Americans of their private health insurance, defund the police, open our borders and raise taxes,” NRCC chair Tom Emmer argued.
According to data from past elections, the party that controls the White House usually loses approximately 25 House seats in the midterm election.
