Vulnerable Republican Seats

CA31 (Dem+5)
An “open seat” which is currently held by Gary Miller [GOP]. However latest polls suggest that the seat is leaning towards the Democrats. Chabot has not been able to raise as much funding as his opponent, or other GOP candidates in the area. See the LA Times article at http://www.latimes.com/local/political/la-me-pc-two-gop-fundraising-20141016-story.html

Paul Chabot [GOP] – Stresses that he is a “Military Officer - Small Business Owner - Law Enforcement Veteran”. http://paulchabot.com/
Pete Aguilar [Dem] - small business owner and Mayor of Redlands. http://www.peteaguilar.com/

NE02 (GOP+7)

Rep Lee Terry [GOP] – Member of the House since 1999, who has survived a number of close re-election contests. He had promised at his first election only to serve three terms – but is now seeking election to his ninth Congress. Currently the seat is rated as a "toss up" by Cook and a "toss up/tilt Democrat" by Rothenberg. http://leeterry.com/

Brad Ashford [Dem] – A member of the Nebraska State Legislature, where he has served as the chairman of the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee. http://bradashfordforcongress.com/
