Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Redistricting Update

NOVADem, in concert with myself and NLS are doing redistricting coverage. He has up a post with an overview of House of Delegate changes in the 2010 census and resulting redistricting. Right now it looks like Loudoun will gain 2 seats, Prince William will gains 1.5 seats and the Stafford/Spotsylvania area will gain 1 seat. Richmond City will lose half a seat, Arlington/Alexandria will lose a seat and Fairfax County will also lose a seat.
Its a pretty good rundown of showing how the regions will look in 2011.

    Y'all are doing a great job. I'm surprised this analysis hasn't caused a greater stir in the blogosphere. Ds and Rs alike seem to (erroneously, in my view) assume that redistricting will help Dems. Your report demonstrates that this is really not likely the case. (Not that anyone should be surprised - since when has redistricting ever helped the minority party outside of 1991?)

    Another question is whether the GOP will have control in 2011.
    Remember, we had all 3 branches in 2001. That is much more unlikey this time around.
