When it comes to the 1st District race, I am surprised the Sun, of all 4th Estate organs, failed to make the point the late R Gov placed his political capital on the line in campaigning vigorously for Harris. That should be the end of Bob as a Statewide candidate, but I doubt either his ego or Kendall will allow him to walk away from public life.

The term is "gerrymandering" which is creating districts with nonsensical borders in order to achieve a party dominance to insure the election of a party member. Democrats are famous for this tactic.
