    Eastern Shelby County is deeeeep red, as you say (trust me... I'm from eastern Shelby County.)

    Under the new map, Fincher is probably not vulnerable to a challenge from a Democrat.  However, he is VERY vulnerable to a primary challenge from a Shelby County-based Republican.

    Basically, everybody in east Shelby County is voting in the Republican primary, while quite a few in rural west Tennessee still vote in the Democratic primary.

    Also, Fincher only got 19% of the vote in the Republican primary in the Shelby County portion of the district in 2010.

    27, white male, TX-26 (current), TN-07 (originally), liberal-leaning independent
