  •  They actually have the 8th district (1+ / 0-)

    now with Sen. Jim Arnold (D-LaPorte) and the 38th with Sen. Tim Skinner (D-Terre Haute). The 8th is safe, and while the 38th is likely, we could lose it in a bad year.

    I wish they would go for those seats on the north side of Indy, and nearly defeated Sen. Scott Schneider (R-Indianapolis) last time in SD-30. But they have diced up enough of the suburbs into the Indy seats to make them lean their way, and then they could on mid-term turnout dropoffs to keep Sen. Jim Merritt (R-Indianapolis) and crazy Sen. Mike Delph (R-Carmel) to keep their seats. They even even cropped up other corners as well. They also took some of the best Dem performing precincts in Lafayette into a rural district and drown West Lafayette out into the surrounding areas. But agreed- a nasty gerrymander. One can see why Senate Republicans are hesitant to go along with the House on non-partisan redistricting.
