It’s not just the national Democrats who have a wish list of Republican incumbents they’d like to unseat in 2018.
Emily’s List, the group that aims to elect women who support abortion rights, has identified 50 congressional and Senate seats nationwide as part of their “On Notice” program to flip seats in the midterm election.
The group has identified seven California Republicans, the largest number of any state. They all occupy seats the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has also prioritized. They are:
10th District: Rep. Jeff Denham (Turlock)
22nd District: Rep. Devin Nunes (Tulare)
25th District: Rep. Steve Knight (Palmdale)
39th District: Rep. Ed Royce (Fullerton)
45th District: Rep. Mimi Walters (Irvine)
48th District: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (Costa Mesa)
49th District: Rep. Darrell Issa (Vista)
Emily’s List says the roster of priority seats is their biggest ever and that the incumbents who hold them have built “appallingly anti-woman, anti-family records.”
Basically Emily’s List just hates white men who disagree with them. We’re not sure what to make of Mimi’s inclusion though…perhaps just bad luck.
