Labour has outlined plans to secure a majority of 60 MPs in 2015 by targeting 106 key seats.
The new stategy was announced today by Labour’s deputy chairman Tom Watson.
At a briefing, he said: "We are determined to be a one-term opposition. Our aim at the next election is to have a 60-seat majority. If we win all of the seats on the list, we will have an 80-seat majority."
Labour aims to have all its candidates for the 2015 election in place by the summer. It has appointed one of Barack Obama's mentors, Arnie Graf, to train 1,000 workers to run local campaigns in the target seats.
“We are trying to draw on some of the experiences of the Obama win,” Mr Watson said.
