And Franklin doesn't ALWAYS vote solid Democrat.<quoted text>
Only an LBJ landslide would cause the Ds to win a Suburban Columbus metro area seat. Delaware County OH is the second most R county in the state.
In Central Ohio, one county votes D, Frankin.
If you want to see where the map is really gerrymanderd, you look at Northeast Ohio. Without creative map drawing, Joyce and Renacci wouldn't be in Congress in the state's most socialist area.
Now it may seem unethical, but I really enjoy not having Betty "Clunkers" Sutton "representing" me, as Sherrod Brown did when he was in Congress under the 1990 D drawn map.
I see it as fair payback for the greatest gerrymandering in US History, the Immigration Act of 1965
Your'e right about Northeast Ohio, though. They did Dennis Kucinich out of a seat altogether, another strike against thuggish Ohio Republicans.
