"This won't go anywhere but it will sure make em sweat a bit !"

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has identified 70 Democrats to target for the 2010 election, according to an email obtained by AOL Politics Daily. Many of the targeted members are Democratic freshmen and sophomores from conservative districts.

The email sent from an NRCC staffer to Republican PACs says that "we have the opportunity to focus on many more districts and some unusual districts that haven't been targeted in a long time." The email with the list of targeted districts appears at the bottom of this page.

Currently the GOP has 178 seats, so the party would need to win 40 more to regain the majority, but Republicans see the momentum moving in their direction. "Many Democrats are on the defense in their districts now," said the NRCC's eCampaign Director, John Randall. Speaking metaphorically, he said, "Our goal is to get as many seaworthy boats in the water, so, if a great wind comes along, we will have the push to cross the finish line."

The list of 70 districts includes many freshman and sophomore members, as well as a large number from conservative districts, where polls show low support for government handling of the economic recession and health care reform.

There are some very interesting Senate races coming up as well.

Rand Paul is running in Kentucky and says some great things.

Peter Schiff may be running against Dodd in Connecticut.

Pat Toomey is running against Specturd - and that race is important.

I will do everything in my power to get Bobby "Nancy's Lapdog" Bright out of office. Same for Parker "I ran as a conservative democrat" Griffith. These two clowns should be gone after this election. Bright was the mayor of Montgomery and was actually a good mayor. He hasn't done so hot in congress. The people in Montgomery are not happy with him. Parker Griffith is doing nothing that the people of Huntsville want and he is in very serious trouble.

That is the intent here in PA at least. Why do you think that Specturd changed parties?

Shouldn't Marion Berry always be on that list, at least as long as he holds the office?


The sad thing is that the democrats don't have him on a list of people they'd like to rid themselves of during the primaries.

Gary Peters is vulnerable. He's in a district that was held for a long time by a republican, Joe Knollenberg. Joe is a social conservative, and a moderate repub would probably do better at this point. It's probably the wealthiest district in Michigan-Birmingham, the Bloomfields, etc.

If I can get away - I'm gonna go to that too. :) You did see that Specturd is racing a primary challenge from a dem rep who is going to lose his seat
