22. The House majority is a real worry for 2022.

Republicans will have had enough time to use the 2020 census to gerrymander their districts and ensure fewer Democrats can be elected. Her in Texas the gerrymandering from 2010 was starting to fray because of people moving into previously Republican majority districts. That will change for 2022 because Republican control the legislature and can do anything they please. The DNC needs to start working on 2022 now.
