Obama group announces midterms hit list

Yeah for President Obama https://www.politico.com/story/2018/06/12/organizing-for-action-2018-plan-640212

Organizing for Action, the group formed out of Barack Obama’s old campaign apparatus, is moving more directly into politics than ever before, deploying in 27 House races around the country this year.

Through an existing partnership with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, OFA will also work in nine states to campaign for ballot initiatives and Democrats running for governor and state legislature positions. The group is pushing for greater Democratic control over redistricting ahead of the 2020 Census.....

he full list of districts includes several where Donald Trump did better than Hillary Clinton. It does not include all the seats held by Republicans in districts where Clinton beat Trump, which Democrats tend to see as their best opportunities for pickups in November.

Here is the full list of districts OFA is targeting:

AZ-02
CA-04
CA-10
CA-21
CA-25
CA-39
CA-45
CA-48
CA-49
CO-06
IA-01
IL-06
KS-03
MN-02
MN-03
MO-02
NC-09
NC-13
NJ-11
NY-11
PA-01
PA-06
PA-07
TX-07
TX-23
TX-32
WI-01

3. I'm so grateful for Eric Holder!!! Of course for Obama...

... but Holder has dug in and concentrated attention on state level races which will influence the next redistricting decisions. The NDRC was started by the two of them, and Holder is the active head of it now. If you want to find out more:

5. I hope they add Georgia 6th

Dems have a primary runoff with winner facing incumbent Repub Trump arse kisser Karen Handel in November.
This district is purple and either of the Dems can beat an unpopular Handel.
