Overall, the NRCC said they plan to target 40 Democrats.
My question is: at what point will Republicans realize they can’t defeat Barrow? Granted last year was a POTUS election and he ran against a flawed candidate but he keeps getting drawn into new districts and keeps beating strong candidates.
The NRCC say they are confident of building on their majority. NRCC Executive Director Liesel Hickey said that with redistricting and a strong campaign, Republicans are well-positioned for success.
“In 2014, Republicans will employ the same proven strategy that brought us such historic success in 2010 and 2012: Stay on offense,” she said.
However, The Hill reports of “growing angst” among Republicans that debt negotiations could cost them the House, while Democrats are saying they have a tough road ahead to reclaim the House–only four GOPers are in Democratic-leaning districts, as opposed to 15 Ds in R-leaning seats. Which means… democracy wins and we’ll have to wait until election day next year to know for sure.
