  •  2001 gerrymandering (0+ / 0-)

    Btw, it's a huge surprise since they really redistricted in 2001 to protect all these seats and had a huge majority.

    It's very hard to gerrymander small districts, so this actually isn't surprising to me. If we had gained substantially in the State Senate (districts four times larger), I would have been surprised. If Republicans had done a competent job at drawing the Congressional lines (districts about 12 times as large as State House districts), they would've held the 4th, 6th, and 8th easily.
