Now that it has become apparent that the GOP is in a real dogfight to hold onto Congress, a lot of Republicans who had tuned out before are starting to wonder where their campaign contributions can have the greatest impact.
Well, let’s think about that. Governors’ races and Senate races tend to be big money affairs, while House races, comparatively at least, tend to be won or lost with much smaller sums. Next, you have to consider that incumbents have a much easier time raising money than candidates running for open seats.
So, especially in this political environment, where Republicans are on the defensive right now, non-incumbent Republicans, in close races for open seats, are the candidates who can probably get the most good out of campaign contributions.
But, has anyone out there put together a list of candidates like that? Well, as of now, they have.
What you will find below is a list of non-incumbents, in tough races, trying to hold onto key seats in the House for the GOP. If you want to put your money where it will really make a big difference, these seats are a great place to start:

There are two other candidates for open seats that a lot of other people seem to think are vulnerable and I’m going to list them for that reason, but, at least for the moment, to me they look like they’re in decent shape given their latest poll numbers and the composition of their districts:
