What is the meaning of "reclaim" below?


• Last week, a group of House freshmen in Trump-leaning districts convened a private strategy session to discuss how they could press Ms. Pelosi to reclaim the issue of border security for Democrats.

It sounds like they believe the Republicans are currently viewed as being in the forefront of the issue of border security, and they would like the Democrats to take it back (reclaim it).
