House of Representatives

On Monday, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman and New York representative Steve Israel announced 16 top candidates for the DCCC’s Red to Blue program, which hopes to spur party switches in Republican-held districts.

“These candidates earned their places in our battle-tested program because of their hard work and the competitive nature of their districts,” explains Israel.

Among the 16 districts the DCCC hopes will turn blue are those currently held by Republican representatives Mike Coffman (CO-06), Tom Latham (IA-03), Joe Heck (NV-03), Jon Runyan (NJ-03) and Michael Grimm (NY-11).

Read on to learn which five DCCC-backed candidates have the best chance of winning a seat in the House in 2014.

    Hmm. Looks like Nevada Republicans are going to have to get some carpetbagger registrations in that district. I am sure they can find some folks that Florida or Texas can spare, or even double vote! Maybe Ann Coulter can explain how to do it.
