Tennessee House Redistricting Plan Unveiled. See the New Map!

  • Rep. Mike Stewart and Rep. Sherry Jones, both Democrats, will be in the same district!
  • A new Republican leaning district* is created in Davidson County with no incumbent!
  • Republicans may pick up as many as nine new seats Statewide next term!
* One source called the new district "republican leaning," the other described it as a African-American and Hispanic majority district in South Nashville.

I have always thought Republicans should be fair in the redistricting process.  They should be as fair as the Democrats have been for the last hundred and thirty years.
