Getting an early start on shoring up at-risk members, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Thursday released a list of 14 it deems most vulnerable in next year’s elections.

They are Reps. Ami Bera in the Sacramento suburbs, Julia Brownley in Ventura County, Pete Aguilar and Raul Ruiz in the Inland Empire and Scott Peters in San Diego.

They and nine other Democratic House members were named to the DCCC’s “Frontline” program, which seeks to provide fundraising and organizational help for their reelection campaigns.
