Democrats took control of the House of Representatives after the 2018 midterm elections, but if the Republican Party wants to take back the House, they’ll have to flip these districts.
To gain House majority following the 2020 midterm elections, Republicans will be looking to flip 31 districts that President Donald Trump won in the 2016 presidential election.
The Republican Party already has 55 districts on their target list, with the 31 included, according to The Hill.

As IJR Blue reported during the 2018 midterm elections, President Trump declared the night a “tremendous success,” even as the Republicans lost control of the House.
One Republican who lost his district in Pennsylvania, former Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.), told IJR previously he was “obviously disappointed” in the loss and regretted opting out of President Trump’s embrace in the midterms.
“Going in, I was hopeful that the House could maintain the majority, notwithstanding the situation in my district, because we have done a lot of great work over the last couple of years,” Rothfus told IJR at the time. “… And I was hopeful that the House would be able to remain in Republican hands. But it didn’t work out.”
Currently, the Democratic Party holds the House, while Republicans are in control of the U.S. Senate — however, Republicans are specifically eyeing the 31 districts in hopes of a different result in 2020.
