Liberal Heartache: Demo Rep. Russ Carnahan's district may be eliminated by redistricting

So long Russ. Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

Ozarks First- A map submitted for consideration of the House Redistricting Committee by its chair, Rep. John Diehl, R-Town and Country, shows the congressional district currently represented by Congressman Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, absorbed by the three congressional districts that currently border it…

…The map also shifts northwest Missouri congressman Sam Graves’ district to include almost every county north of the Missouri River from the western border of the state to the eastern border.

Another significant shift appears to have been made in mid-Missouri where the city of Columbia and Boone County, traditional Democratic strongholds, have been shifted out of the district represented by current Ninth District Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer and placed into the district of freshman U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Harrisonville.
