Err no one has ever claimed it was a Republican scam...specific to the state of Maryland. Sorry for responding as if you knew what you were talking about.

I never mentioned Gerrymandering.

I did ask who lives in District 7 that's posting in this thread?

I also said geographically it's mostly affluent.

Much of the nicest parts of the area are in Districts 5, and 7.......

Klacik is running in a District that is also Suburban, educated, and affluent. Some on here didn't get the memo..........



Yep. It also exposes the right's fan boys.


Yet people think she would somehow change the smallest part of her district simply because she has an (R) behind here name .

The ad is Republican Propaganda.

You mentioned that District 7 has a lot of affluent areas, which is a result of the Gerrymandering, which as far as Maryland is concerned should be pronounced ger'ry'me'and'er'ing. Looking at Districts 2,3,4,7,and 8 it is very apparent. As a result of those attempts, even 1,5 and 6 are seriously affected.

You opened the door.

While I don't live in 7, my daughter, as a result of the district line redrawing, does live in the HOCO area of 7.

You have to remember the purpose, plainly stated by Governors Glendenning, O'Malley and the State Senate President Thomas V. "Mike" Miller, which was to totally eliminate any Republican Congressmen coming from Maryland.

They got rid of 2 of 4 in the 2001 redistricting and 1 of the remaining 2 in 2011. They would have gotten all of them then but the map was so bad that even the Maryland Court of Appeals, as partisan as it is, would have had to reject it.

They also had to protect Hoyer, and to a lesser extent Miller although that redistricting is separate from the Congressional one, and moved his district south.

They're under pressure to create another majority minority district this time but really won't have to. When Hoyer leaves his district will automatically transition to majority minority.

The 6th is a hot mess. Nothing like Rockville and Oakland sharing a Congressman. What, 75% or so of the candidates have been from out of district since 2010?: Delaney, Bongino, Hoeber, Trone......

But yeah, mission accomplished. I was no Roscoe fan, but the new 6th has no identity. I feel it made all of the communities who are now part of it weaker.
