( – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in a memo that was originally given to The Hill outlines the five key reasons they believe the party was on its way back to winning the majority in 2024.

In the memo it is noted that “freshman Republican incumbents” had the benefit in the last election of running without having a voting record behind them, however, that would not be the case in 2024. As they pointed out these moderate candidates will now be called to answer why they have supported extremists like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, or have voted for the election of conservative new House Speaker Mike Johnson.

The memo was released exactly one year before the 2024 Election Day, and it points out the efforts taken by the Democrats to win back control of the House. In order to win the majority the Democrats only need to flip five-net seats.

The messaging came only two weeks before the Republican conference unanimously chose Johnson as the next House Speaker after multiple weeks of the office being left vacant after the ousting of former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

The 18 Republicans who are in districts that were won in 2020 by President Biden are all up for reelection in the upcoming election. They also voted in favor of Johnson winning the Speaker’s gavel which is something they will need to answer for.

The Democrats have also been quick to slam Johnson over his conservative voting record and his connection to former President Donald Trump.
