  •  So we might not get changes in Gerrymandered (7+ / 0-)

    Districts, but there are other districts where a Republicon was elected by a slim majority where we can pick up the necessary seats in 2014.  What we have to do is look at the D vs R voters and take it from there.  We also need to register voters.  It's not enough to just do voter registerations every 4 years, they have to be done even for midterm elections.  

    As we found out with the 2010 elections, midterm elections matter.  The 2010 elections where Republicons took over many State Houses and Gerrymandered districts and then put through laws against women, voter rights, etc should open our eyes very wide.

      MI has 11 cong districts, only 4 of which have Dem representatives.   MI went 8.5% for Obama, very blue State.  There are at least 4 districts where the right Dem candidate could pick up a seat in 2014.
