75 House Races

Posted by DavidNYC

Superribbie has an awesome, comprehensive look at 75 Republican-held House seats which should form the basis of a broad-based Democratic assault in 2006, ala Gingrich in 1994. Tons of people have dropped by to comment as well.

Also, check here for his (her?) list of the top 25 most Democratic GOP-held districts.

I think it's better to aim for a number higher than 15 (the number of gains we'd need).

One thing that should be put out to people considering running is that there is "blood in the water", and that they have a better chance of winning in 2006 than the other elections.

Also, if anybody has a useful way to turn the Republican strength (money) against them, then it should be put out there so we can neutralize some of their "Warchest" advantage.

Would Congressman Young from Florida's 10th be the same Bill Young who was responsible for the $2million line item in the budget to repurchase the Presidential Yacht Sequoia?

According to Congressman Young's spokesperson he was afraid that it would be used as a riverboat casino somewhere. Considering it costs about $500,000 a year to run and only holds 49 passengers I think the riverboat scenario is unlikely. More like the GOP was trying to fend off another offer from Little Rock to purchase the Sequoia and park it next to the Clinton Library. http://www.arkansasbusiness.com/news/headline_article.asp?aid=18374 Even though the last report of the Democrats from Arkansas making an offer was sometime early in 2001.

Also Frank LoBiondo in NJ has a challenger
