House Republicans have seven key Democrats they are zeroing in on to beat in midterm elections.
A National Republican Congressional Committee memo
obtained by National Journal Daily identifies the lawmakers as Reps. Ron Barber and Ann Kirkpatrick of Arizona, John Barrow of Georgia, Jim Matheson of Utah, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, and Nick Rahall of West Virginia.
The seven represent districts that have voted for the Republican nominee in the last three presidential elections.
“In 2014, Republicans will employ the same proven strategy that brought us such historic success in 2010 and 2012: Stay on offense,” NRCC Executive Director Liesl Hickey writes in the memo.
“Today, the GOP enjoys the second-largest Republican majority in the House since World War II, and that majority is built on a solid foundation. In contrast, the Democrats’ hopes of winning in 2014 continue to rest on quicksand.”
Hickey added the NRCC plans to target more than 40 races.
