    I would expect either Bartlett (who would still prevail in a GOP primary, whether against Ficker or anyone else) or some other known Republican from the non-MoCo portion of the district (in the event Bartlett changes his mind and hangs it up) to overperform in Western MD in general. It wont be about the redistricting (though conservative blogs and the MSM will probably peddle that narrative) so much as its territorial loyalty.

    To most folks west of South Mountain, Montgomery County is a strange and foreign land whose politicians think Frederick is as far north/west as one ever needs to go. Not everyone there is a Republican or a conservative, but a MoCo Dem is a very hard sell. I think the map drawers have done an effective job in making sure the Dem candidate doesn't need many western voters, but I wouldn't count Bartlett out.
