What If Dennis Kucinich Is Resdistricted Out?
Congressman Dennis Kucinich is rightfully concerned that his district will be eliminated by the incoming Ohio legislature.
Due to the new census figures, Ohio will lose two seats in Congress. The Ohio Legislature (Republican) will redraw the map with 16 instead of 18 districts for the 2012 Election. Speculation nationally, and more importantly, in Ohio is that my district may be eliminated, absorbed into parts of other districts. Keep in mind, given the early Ohio primary, the filing deadline could be only a year away.
We are going to have to prepare for a different kind of election, possibly in a different place because my district may be eliminated. We are going to have to organize in a different way, now. The question will remain: Where?
And what a loss it would be if one of the pure progressive legislators were no longer in the halls of Congress.Click here for reuse options!
