"The route to recapturing the House runs through the “Biden 18” - the 18 Republicans sitting in districts won by Joe Biden in 2020." - Washington Post
"There are 18 Republicans who won districts in the midterms that Joe Biden won in 2020. They ensured that MAGA extremism would claim power in Congress. They’ve attacked abortion rights and threatened essential programs like Social Security and Medicare. Some ran as moderates. Some refused to talk to voters. And one straight-up lied about his resume and identity entirely. But they all have one thing in common: they’ve been voting in lockstep with the MAGA majority even though their constituents oppose MAGA extremism." - Indivisible

Democrats begin to target vulnerable GOP seats
"Some seats are located in very expensive media markets in New York or California; others are in safe Biden states where Republican turnout might be low. Some New York seats would be tough to take back (e.g., the 19th Congressional District) unless Democrats can redistrict them. With those considerations in mind, Democrats assessing the contests think 14 to 16 of the 18 districts are gettable. A swing of just five seats would put the House back in Democratic hands.
The process of prioritizing races and marshaling money has already begun. Yasmin Radjy, executive director of Swing Left, a national organization with an extensive grass-roots network of volunteers and donors for Democrats in competitive seats, announced the six incumbent Republicans of those 18 the organization will initially focus on." - Washington Post
