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.

Redrawing the 8th District

The 8th Congressional District is the easiest to guess on makeup because it doesn't change much. We know it will have Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church and the rest will be Fairfax County. Based on projections 411,811 of Fairfax County's 1,053,269 projected residents will be in the 8th. That leaves 641,458 in Fairfax for the 10th and 11th.

Here is the projected breakdown in 2011:
Alexandria City: 128,091 (17.5%)
Arlington County: 181,113 (24.7%)
Falls Church City: 11,387 (1.6%)
Fairfax County: 411,811 (56.2%)

I hope to have a breakdown for the 11th later this week.
