The Republican Party is concerned about an additional erosion of its congressional bases this year. But the GOP has a plan in its back pocket to remedy that potentiality.
Sam Stein writes for the Huffington Post that if the Republicans are big congressional losers during this year's general election, they'll next push for redistricting. Re-drawing lines to, of course, favor Republican candidates over Democrats.
The way to do that, Stein reports, is to get more Republicans into governor chairs across the nation. Because, he says, governors greatly influence the redistricting efforts in their respective states.
So basically they're saying they want to circumvent the anticipated will of the people. And you wonder why so many Americans are disenchanted with the partisan political process!
