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.

1st District in 2010

The 1st Disrict is the one district that will probably not see a massive change in district lines in 2010. The areas of Stafford & Spotsylvania as well as Caroline and Fauquier are seeing decent growth, but overall the district is growing at about the same rate as the state. As a result, most of the district lines should not see major changes. The four pivot areas are Newport News, Spotsylvania, Fauquier, and Prince William. These are the 4 localities where lines move to set the district. It is likely the 1st will lose some of Newport News, but thats the only move from current projections.

The 2nd will be put up tomorrow. That will be interesting.
