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.

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.
