The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) have identified their top targets for 2020 and will zero in on 33 congressional districts that are currently held by Republicans, according to a strategy memo.

The target list, which was released Monday by CNN, was contained in a strategy memo from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), the chair of the DCCC. Within the memo, Democrats said they are now "gearing up for an aggressive effort to fortify and expand" their current House majority.

"2018 was just the tip of the iceberg for Democrats," said Bustos. "Today we are announcing our plan to go on offense and grow our New Democratic Majority. We have a clear path to expanding our Democratic Majority, and by putting our plans in motion earlier in the cycle than ever before, we are demonstrating to Democrats across the country that the political arm of House Democrats is operating in high gear from the start."
