Amid the chaos of the sham second impeachment of Donald Trump, Democrats continue to advance their anti-American agenda nearly entirely unimpeded.
National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) chairman Tom Emmer (R-MN) has a plan to combat that control, announcing on Wednesday that the coalition is formulating a plan to “retire Speaker Pelosi once and for all.”
The NRCC has drawn up a list of 47 “vulnerable Democrats” that constitute “prime pick-up opportunities” in the 2022 midterms. Democrats have controlled the House since 2018, but their majority in the House is currently the smallest recorded in history.
Pelosi was narrowly re-elected as House Speaker in January, but a combination of President Joe Biden swiping Democrat Reps. for his own administration and major Democrat House losses in the November election made it a very close call for Pelosi.
“Midterm elections are historically checks on the party in power and I believe that’s going to be bad news for House Democrats,” Emmer told reporters on Wednesday. “It’s not going to be easy but we’re going to finish the job that we started.”
Democrats in the crosshairs include “29 Battleground Democrats where President Biden lost the district or where the 2020 presidential or congressional margin was within 5 points,” along with “eight underperforming Democrats, these are weak incumbents who won by less than 10% and underperformed the presidential ballot margin in their district.”
GOP strategists are also monitoring “10 Redistricting Watch Democrats, who currently represent districts in states that are going to gain or lose seats during the reapportionment, or they represent districts in states that have a redistricting commission.”
Looking back on the 2020 election, most focus on the loss of GOP Senate control and the chaos surrounding Joe Biden’s inauguration, but Republicans managed to flip a shocking number of vulnerable Democrat House seats — pointing to a trend of dissatisfaction with Democrat lawmakers in swing districts across the nation.
