The House GOP’s campaign arm added 10 new districts to the target list they see as viable pick ups on Tuesday. 

The additions to the list come shortly after census information was released that determined some blue states would lose congressional districts. 

“Republicans are on offense all across the country,” NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) said in a statement. 

“Every House Democrat is facing an uphill battle having to defend their toxic socialist agenda that prioritizes trillion-dollar tax hikes on the middle class, opens our borders, closes our schools and defunds the police.”

The list includes Democratic Reps. Ami Bera (Calif.), Jim Costa (Calif.), Raul Ruiz (Calif.), Marie Newman (Ill.), Dan Kildee (Mich.), Kathleen Rice (N.Y.), Paul Tonko (N.Y.), Joe Morelle (N.Y.), Brian Higgins (N.Y.) and Chrissy Houlahan (Pa.). 

Republicans need to pick up just five seats to take back the House, with GOP lawmakers expressing optimism about their odds given historic trends and redistricting falling in their favor. 

It was announced last month that Texas is set to add two House seats, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Oregon will each add one seat while Illinois, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan and California will each lose one. 

The National Republican Congressional Committees original list of 47 Democratic members they planned to target includes: DCCC Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney (N.Y.), Tom O’Halleran (Ariz.), Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.), John Garamendi (Calif.), Jash Harder (Calif.), Katie Porter (Calif.), Mike Levin (Calif.), Jahana Hayes (Conn.), Stephanie Murphy (Fla.), Charlie Crist (Fla.), Lucy McBath (Ga.), Carolyn Bourdeaux (Ga.), Cindy Axne (Iowa), Sean Casten (Ill.), Lauren Underwood (Ill.), Cheri Bustos (Ill.), Sharice Davids (Kansas), Jared Golden (Maine), Elissa Slotkin (Mich.), Haley Stevens (Mich.) Angie Craig (Minn.), Dean Phillips (Minn.), Deborah Ross (N.C.), Chris Pappas (N.H.), Andy Kim (N.J.), Josh Gottheimer (N.J.), Tom Malinowski (N.J.), Mikie Sherrill (N.J.), Susie Lee (Nev.), Steven Horsford (Nev.), Tom Souzzi (N.Y.), Antonio Delgado (N.Y.), Tim Ryan (Ohio), Peter DeFazio (Ore.), Kurt Schrader (Ore.), Susan Wild (Pa.), Matt Cartwright (Pa.), Conor Lamb (Pa.), Lizzie Fletcher (Texas), Vicente Gonzalez (Texas), Henry Cuellar (Texas), Colin Allred (Texas), Filemon Vela (Texas), Elaine Luria (Va.), Abigail Spanberger (Va.), Kim Schrier (Wash.), Ron Kind (Wis.).
