    I look forward (not) to the Republicans gerrymandering Tennessee in 2011-12 and messing with the 4th, 6th, and maybe 8th Districts.

    Of the four red-state open Dem mansions, the only one I could see the Democrats holding is Oklahoma, and even that one's quite tough.

    The Republican Party is neither pro-republic nor pro-party. Discuss!

    •  Even if they mess with 6 or 8 (1+ / 0-)

      Bart Gordon and John Tanner can probably weather the storm, they're still very popular and pretty well entrenched.  It'd probably be difficult for them to tinker with the 8th too much, since that would involve opening up Marsha Marsha Marsha! Blackburn's district.  Lincoln Davis in the 4th probably has the most to worry about in that scenario.

        ...Lincoln Davis is running for Governor, probably figures "If the Dems lose I'm toast in 2012 anyways...).
