Roll Call apparently got a list generated by the DCCC of the 52 Republicans who were elected with 55% or less of the vote in districts that were won by Obama in 2008.
Of those, Steve Chabot and Steve Stivers are the only Ohioans who made the made the list. The Democrats only need to net 23 seats in 2012 to regain the majority in 2012.
What’s probably a surprise is that the DCCC would have a target list so early in the 2012 cycle when the districts are about to change anyways. Believe me, if I were Jean Schmidt, I’d be concerned that the Republicans might split her base in Clermont County to shore up Chabot with more reliably Republican voters in his district.
