The National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) is ramping up pressure on Democrats ahead of the 2022 midterms.

Chairman, Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) said on Tuesday that Democrats in the House are facing the choice of either retiring or losing their seats. Emmer also said the 17 Democrats who have announced they are not running for reelection have made a “smart choice.”

This comes as the organization recently put 13 more Democrats on their target list and is running paid ads against several lawmakers. Republicans need to flip five seats in the midterms to take control of the House.
