    The loser in a seven-seat Minnesota will be rural areas.  Either they'll have to be merged into the 6th district disaster and risk flipping Republican, or else rural MN will lose a seat.  The urban core is growing too quickly to lose representation at this point.

      Will cease to exist....

      It has no logical geographic affiliation.  It has always been something of a mishmash with its combination of St CLoud and Stillwater.

      St Cloud (w quarter) could just as well be in the 7th. Stillwater (E quarter) combined into a St Paul CD. The Northern quarter made part of the current 8th district and the Southern quarter tied to a MPLS CD.

      Basically you have a sliver of MN that is pretty conservative that has been crammed together.
