  •  "quarter century" ??? (1+ / 0-)

    "Also, the region housed within the lines of the 23rd district has not elected a Democrat to the House in around a quarter of a century."

    actually, most of the territory in this district hasn't been represented by a Democrat since the 1880's ! (the second longest stretch of time out of all congressional districts; not sure where the quarter century stat came from ??? -- perhaps looking at part of district and/or the district numbering threw you off.)  it would really be sweet to elect the first Democrat here in over 100 years.
