House Democrats have outlined their offensive for the 2022 midterm elections, targeting 22 districts that could likely change once the House map is reshaped by the decennial redistricting process in the coming months.


Ahead of the 2022 contests, Democrats find themselves in the unenviable position of safeguarding a razor-thin majority and are preparing to be on defense for slotxo download  the election and for a tough redistricting cycle, in which states redraw the boundaries for both their congressional and state legislative. districts after the Census.


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is currently set to target a smaller list of districts, compared with last cycle, mostly in suburban areas that helped the party forge a majority in Washington over the last four years.


But the once-a-decade redistricting process, which has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, is likely to reshuffle the look of the House map. The GOP holds an advantage in redistricting and are expected to also have an edge in next year's races, since history favors the party out of power in midterms.


Democrats are trying to avoid that fate by elevating President Joe Biden's signature legislative achievement so far - his COVID-19 relief bill - and Republican opposition to the party's agenda to gain ground next year.


"Every single Republican on this list voted against putting checks in pockets and shots in arms, and we're going to make sure voters in their district know it," said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, DN.Y., who chairs the DCCC , in a nod to the $ 1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package passed last month.
