Sarah Palin's Target List

More

Sarah Palin has a target list for 2010.

In a post to her Facebook page today, Palin announced that her political organization, SarahPAC, will target 20 districts represented by House Democrats who voted for health care reform Sunday night AND whose districts were won by McCain/Palin in 2008.

SarahPAC raised $2.1 million and disbursed $1.2 million in 2009, according to Federal Election Commission filings--second-most among 2012 contenders.

Three of those target Democrats have already announced an intention to retire, but Palin said SarahPAC will still splay a role in their districts in 2010. Palin said she'll work to see that "Commonsense Conservatives" replace them...in other words, she won't necessarily be endorsing Republican candidates.

All but one--Rep. Harry Mitchell (D-NV)--are also on the National Republican Congressional Committee's target list.

They are:

Vic Snyder (AR-2) (retiring)
Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-1)
Harry Mitchell (AZ-5)
Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-8)
John Salazar (CO-3)
Betsy Markey (CO-4)
Allen Boyd (FL-2)
Suzanne Kosmas (FL-24)
Brad Ellsworth (IN-8) (leaving House to run for Senate)
Baron Hill (IN-9)
Earl Pomeroy (ND-at large)
Charlie Wilson (OH-6)
John Boccieri (OH-16)
Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-3)
Christopher Carney (PA-10)
John Spratt (SC-5)
Bart Gordon (TN-6) (retiring)
Tom Perriello (VA-5)
Alan Mollohan (WV-1)
Nick Rahall (WV-2)
