When it comes to protecting the House, the best defense is a good offense

Don’t let Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene join the House majority

Sometimes, the best defense is a good offense.

Democrats are heading into a difficult midterm defending a very narrow majority in the U.S. House. Republicans need to flip just five seats to take control, and we’re defending a lot of vulnerable members.

But that’s only part of the story. Thanks to Republican retirements, the continued defection of suburban voters from the GOP, and unexpected Democratic successes in redistricting, there’s a whole host of districts where Democrats can go on offense and flip seats from red to blue.

These are the sorts of opportunities Daily Kos has always prioritized, and which you’ve always responded to with such enthusiasm. These races not only give us the chance to stick it to the GOP, they offer us greater bang for the buck, since challengers invariably don’t have access to the kinds of resources that incumbents do.

We’ve identified 10 different races where our people-powered donations can make the most difference. These are all seats where Republicans are on defense, and they’re also districts that, under the new lines, Joe Biden would have carried in 2020.

Can you give $1 now to turn each of these GOP House seats blue?
