Congressional Redistricting For Dummies Like Me

I think the Bridgeport Index got it a little wrong because the west of Wise County will be included in the newly realigned 13th congressional district. (Assuming no legal challenges.)  And take a look at that map below. We'll be lucky to ever see the congressman for that district.
(Be careful of that guy in the tie. He looks a little shady.)


Wise County is in the blue outlined box. The proposed new 13th district goes all the way to the panhandle.  Man, that's a lot of land.

The brand new 33rd district takes Decatur and loops through Parker County and into Arlington in Southern Tarrant County. I don't think we'll have much clout there, either.

What's the over-under on how many times we see Mac Thornberry in a year? Long way from Clarendon (his homebase).

Splitting Wise county between districts is just flat dumb, much less representing the needs of Bridgeport and Alvoid the same as Dalhart.

1:05- if it makes you feel better, Simpson probably doesn't pay him much since he is so cheap....

Wasn't it nice to see Bettye all dressed up for the photo?

Damn Barrister, I guess you really didn't like me picking in your boy Williamson. You wouldn't post many of the comments I made.
