    I won't do it myself, but I get the feeling of helplessness that living in a red district means. Being represented by Steve Chabot was bad enough, but in 2010 I was Gerrymandered into the district from which Mean Jean Schmidt was pushed out of for not being "conservative" enough. The way Boner has this thing drawn, the Dems didn't even bother promoting a candidate in 2012. Obama won Cincinnati, but the two congressional districts that are contained in the city went Tea Party by large margins. Even when we had a Democratic representative, he was anti-choice and voted against all healthcare reform proposals until the last. So, at least in terms of representation in the House, Ohio 2 is hopeless for anyone to the left of Teddy Cruz.
