Redistricting Notes: Is Today The Day?

A couple more notes on redistricting…

** Last night, Rep. Greg Snowden said this on Twitter: “Indications are that House redistricting plan will be unveiled tomorrow, with floor vote likely Friday.” As we have promised all along, we will get those two you as quickly as we can followed by analysis on what they mean.

** This morning I was on the Gallo show and he said he followed up with some folks at the capitol about my use of the word “outfoxed” to describe what some we’re telling me about Tommy Reynolds’ plan and the House GOP caucus seeming pretty happy with it. What he had heard was that Republicans were denying that and said they were fighting for the best map possible.

** I heard last night that the map may show some changes to a couple Northeast Mississippi districts that I wanted to point out. There is talk that maps may be drawn to move the home base of Chip Wood- who is a Republican challenging Harvey Moss- out of HD 2 and place him in HD 1; currently represented by Republican Bubba Carpenter. We’ll know when we get the maps.

** Phil Bryant said today that the federal government should no longer be involved in overseeing redistricting in Mississippi. Bryant said: “We’ve got a Justice Department, we’ve got people in Washington, D.C., saying, ‘We’re going to look over your shoulder and tell you where every line is supposed to be, where every dot is supposed to be. So the Obama Justice Department’s going to tell us how we ought to be doing things in Mississippi?”

    Oh this is going to go real well. After the legislature is done, it must be reviewed by the Bamster’s personal communist bigot, Eric (don’t dis “my people) Holder.

    Chip Wood gerrymandered out of a race?? Could not happen to a more deserving person!

    Why does Phil Bryant hate the American government so much?

      Is it the American Government he hates so much or the represenative of that government. Yes, Mr. Bryant the Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, and Johnson’s Justice Department’s reviewed Mississippi’s plan and so is President Barack Huessin Obama’s Justice Department.
