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.

7th District 2010

The 7th district runs from Page County in the Valley through Culpeper and Spotsylvania to Richmond. With the current population growth in the area, it will likely shrink, or at least stay the same. Most likely the areas in the western part of the district will be pushed into the Valley district (be it the 6th or a new 5th) leaving the 7th as an almost total Richmond seat. It may also gain Albemarle if it not put into a new 5th Valley district to dilute the democratic stronghold that seems to be forming there.
Either way, nothing here should have a drastic change on the congressional landscape.
