The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) will target 31 House Republicans and two open seats in the 2024 general election, the group announced Monday.

The DCCC, House Democrats’ campaign arm, will target seven Republican-held seats in California and six in New York. The committee will also hope to retain the seats held by California Rep. Katie Porter and Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin, both of whom are running for Senate. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Elissa Slotkin Chews Out Handpicked Debate Moderator For Not Asking Abortion Question)

Executive Director Julie Merz told NBC News, which first reported the list, that the committee will seek to tie Republican candidates to former president and current GOP front-runner Donald Trump, as well as the Freedom Caucus.

“There are no more Republican moderates. They had an opportunity very early in the speaker’s vote to stand up to the most vocal MAGA extremists and say, ‘This isn’t OK. This isn’t the direction we want our caucus to go.’ And they folded,” she said.

The DCCC is targeting 18 Republican freshmen, including Florida Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, New York Rep. George Santos, and  Arizona Rep. Juan Ciscomani. All six New York targets, more than half of the delegation’s Republicans, are freshmen. Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, who won the closest race of the 2022 midterms, is also a target, and challenger Adam Frisch is already seeking a rematch.

The National Republican Congressional Committee is targeting 35 Democrats, including Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger and Maine Rep. Jared Golden. It is also hoping to flip the seats vacated by Porter and Slotkin.
