House Democrats have been in the minority for decades — they trail Republicans 103-90 — but there is new excitement in their caucus because there are new maps that they say are fairer. They think they may have a shot if not to completely overtake the House, to at least close the gap.
“We have eight open seats that Joe Biden and Josh Shapiro won that we are competing very hard in, seats where the numbers are on our side. For the first time in 30 years, we’re competing in fairer maps. They still do tilt Republican, but they’re much fairer than gerrymandered maps that Democrats have been running in for three decades,” Rep. Leanne Krueger (D-Delaware County) said.
