The 2010 election netted Republicans 63 House seats, which means there are plenty of targets for Democrats in 2012 — especially in districts that went for President Obama in the last presidential cycle.
There are 31 newly elected Republican representatives who represent districts won by Obama. Add those to the current members and that makes 62 Republican-held House seats that Obama carried in 2008.
Here are the 31 incoming GOP members who represent districts won by the president.

There are any number of targets for Democrats in those districts, with much depending on how redistricting plays out in states like Ohio, New York and Illinois, all of which are losing House seats. Several ousted Democrats have also already hinted at rematches.
Of these 31 districts, Obama won just one of them by more than 60 percent of the vote in 2008. In the 10th District of Illinois, which was won by Rep.-elect Robert Dold last month, Obama won 61 percent of the vote over Arizona Sen.
