"SNIP........

“House Democrats are already sizing up the 2024 election map, circling Republicans in districts that mostly voted for President Biden as their top early targets,” Axios reports.

“The early primer of the 2024 battleground could influence how certain House Republicans vote and comport themselves, as well as where presidential candidates spend their time and parties focus their resources.”

1. They should start with boebert's seat. Run a really good candidate, not that the last one wasn't

Target ads and run with it. Voters were obviously keen on getting rid of her..and no doubt still are.

3. Adam Frisch has already done the paperwork

He’s running in 2024. We’ll see if anyone primaries her.

After 2 more years of her shenanigans and I’m fairly sure you’ll see her gone.

7. Considering how close the race is in CO3, Frisch is a very good candidate.

The recount could prove very interesting.

2. Start in NY where we bungled the re-districting with overreach...

that cost us several seats. A judge stepped in and drew a map that favored repugs.

4. 2 things

1) We can't until 2032. Redistricting is every 10 years.

2) The judges were correct. NY banned gerrymandering in 2014. The map drawn up might not seem fair, but it is. It's not that it favors Republicans, it's just how it lands at the moment. We can tweak it in 2032.

6. We can certainly do something before 2032...

why would we wait that long to try to defeat republicans in specific districts?

And Rep. Maloney blamed himself for overdoing the re-drawing of the maps, which drew a judge into the fray. I doubt highly doubt Dems will wait ten years try to get those seats back...getting out votes and hard campaigning are in order.

8. I'm not sure that redistricting can only be done every ten years.

9. Yes but

it puts us at a disadvantage because Republican states are allowed to gerrymander and we’re not.

11. Favored how?

We won the popular vote in NY 55%-44% and took 58% of the seats compared to their 42%. Seems fairly representational.

The vote swung 6-7% their way, that's a GOTV problem, not a map problem.

by him and the Dems overreached. They got too greedy and a judge stepped in and re-drew them.

Lesson learned, but seats, and the House, lost.

One lesson might be, don't unilaterally disarm (re-district without looking out for self) when the other side doesn't. Meaning republicans still won in gerrymandered districts in many parts of the country (they didn't disarm and have no plans to).

13. You Are Right

I am in New York and we did screw up the maps. I am surprised that this was not a bigger national story. If we held those New York congressional seats we probably would have held the House. I am hopeful about 2024 though.
