Remind me how this model turned restauranteur and regular in her town's police blotter just has grassroots support welling up?

This is the RNC's plan. And that is to disenfranchise and make up new rules every time they are challenged. And the only way to get them out, is to vote. Every damn election. Every. Single. One. Until they can't cheat their way to success.

Democrats just need to find a hot gal to run as a repug against Boebert who spouts all the GOP b.s. but then when the time is right pulls a Sinema.

There are other Democrats in the race against her. It's just this one perticular one who no longer lives in that district.

Our state runs about 54% R, 46% D.

Our current state reps? 12-4.
And we are losing a seat in the redistricting. Our new ratio?

Likely 13-2.

R's are cheating lying monsters.

Funny thing is my flaming homosexual neighbor is Republican and doesn't think they are doing gerrymandering. He is half Jewish/half Lebanese and would be one of the first they throw in the ovens.

The only reason they aren't gerrymandering themselves 14 of those 15 seats is they can't figure out how to do that.

One usually allows a throwaway or a gimme seat where you can shove everything you don't want into a district or two.

Redistricting is a double-edge sword.  With changes to how we work, expect liberals to move into more rural areas which may disrupt carefully balanced totals.

In this case it's The Hill.  I see þhey're running Johnathon Turley articles.  I thought they'd gotten rid of that guy after he was exposed as a deliberate liar and paid GQP propagandist.

The fact that she is trailer park cute doesn't hurt but it is mostly about guns.  Her district is rural and most households here have multiple guns.  Heck, there is a little town out here that mandates people own a gun.  Most people here like to go into the desert and shoot cans or targets (perfectly legal), shoot trap and hunt.  They don't want to shoot people generally.  Going out shooting is something they did with their dad and want to do with their son.  You could run the most gun friendly Dem out here and they wouldn't vote for them because they don't trust them to not take away their guns.

I funnied this but you are not totally incorrect but not for the reason you think.  I live in her district and it is growing significantly.  I bought a house in a new construction neighborhood and I am one of the few people here who just move across town.  My next door neighbors are from Denver and Indiana.  One of them regularly puts out a little rainbow flag with a peace sign on it.  The two people who put pro Trump signs out have both moved since the election.

There honestly needs to be house rules that say gerrymander to your heart's delight.

Your reps get votes to reflect the will of the people.

You have a state that the American hating constitution shiatting economic illiterate republican vote is 55% but you get 13 of 15 seats because of gerrymandering each of your sad little losers gets .64 of a vote in the house and the 2 Dems get 3.38 votes each. You still get the 55% you earned you don't get to get a fake majority in the house because you are a sad little coward that refuses to have a fair election.

My suggestions as follows:

First: Constitutional amendment outlining redistricting so that basically you just carve out the districts based upon population and being contiguous.  All parties claim to be for fair redistricting so let them put up or shut up and put an end to gerrymandering.

Second:  Each state is guaranteed one member in the House of Representatives. After the census use the population of the least populous state to determine the size of each Congressional district.  This would probably increase the number of members of the House by around 75. When compared to the legislatures of other countries the House of Representatives, at 435 voting members, is really too small.
