The contributions from Pelosi, one of the Democratic Party’s most prolific fundraisers, will be a boost to Democrats who are already narrowly holding on to the House. 

Republicans only need to flip five seats in the midterm elections to win control of the lower chamber, and history is on the GOP’s side, given that the party in power typically loses seats in the first midterm of a new administration. 

The DCCC this week rolled out its Frontline Program for the 2022 cycle, identifying 32 swing-seat Democrats the party will prioritize in defending.
