  •  Even those of us who are in blue/purple states (9+ / 0-)

    have been disenfranchised by gerrymandering.  Boehner did a number on OH with a secret redistricting effort that gives the GOP 75% of our representatives when they get less than 50% of the votes. Gave himself a super safe district while he was at it.

    •  A lot of pro-Republican gerrymandered districts (0+ / 0-)

      are vulnerable because they have a relatively small majority of Republican voters.  Changing a few hundred minds per district can result in a Democratic landslide.

      Maybe so, but the ones around him, maybe not so much.
