    I know going into this the polls had the race at a dead heat and Reynolds has way more $$.

    (of course they all do, they are bought and paid for!)

    but, a dead heat in a very conservative, gerrymandered district tells you just how disgusted NY 26 already is.

    Davis from what I can tell, is a real "outsider" who has been working on this for while...he really is a patriot who wants to do something for working America before it's too late.

    He'd be great in the house.

      Could someone please tell me how they get away with all the gerrymandering that is mentioned here and quite frequently on other posts on DKos?  I vaguely recall discussions of it in the high school history textbooks I used in the 1960's and remember a political cartoon graphic of a gerrymandered district shaped like an animal (was it a fox?). But if my senility-addled mind recalls correctly, it was a discussion of it being controversial and illegal.

      Would someone be so kind as to explain how it has become so prevelant?
