Illinois Redraws the Map

The first salvo of the 2010 census results have been fired. In Illinois, the democrat control legislature has redrawn the district map and it will heavily favor democrats, possibly negating election results from 2010. Several new Republican Congress-critters will more than likely be facing an uphill battle for reelection due to the redrawn districts.

Politics, what a messy endeavor. The funny thing is that Republicans will be doing the same thing in states they now control. The 2010 election results at the state level do heavily favor the Republicans so it might be the goings-on in Illinois will not have a significant impact in the overall picture.
