California GOP Representatives vulnerable in Midterms

California Democrats plan on targeting GOP Reps in the midterms, and with DACA being front and center for many, this makes quite a few of these seats vulnerable. California has one fourth (200,000) of the DACA participants and a large Hispanic population in general. Many of the Reps are from the Central Valley where they are representing large Hispanic populations and many of them will have to answer to the voters if they screw the coming votes up.

I read this earlier at some site and then also got this part from an email from Nate Silvers site;

"California where Democrats plan to specifically target nine of the state’s 14 GOP congressional representatives in the 2018 midterms" - FiveThirtyEight.com newsletter.

This got me to thinking that Texas too, should have several GOP districts that could flip. And there have to be other area's open to challenges from Democrats.

It will take some work, but the house looks like it can be flipped. The House is in play for the 2018 midterms.

Both are awful bastards.
