North Carolina Republican state Sen. John Alexander has announced that he will not seek re-election after he was caught trying to gerrymander his own district.
Howie: There are virtually no races in Virginia more important this cycle than the one to reelect Lee Carter in the House of Delegates and the one to replace Trumpist Richard Stuart with Qasim Rashid in the state Senate.
If you're with us about putting forward the kind of progressive agenda that both Bernie and Elizabeth are campaigning on, it is crucial we get rid of more dead wood from Congress like Bill Foster and replace them with Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Democrats from the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party-- like Rachel Ventura.
The 2020 Census brings new opportunities for Trump to abuse his power for the benefit of Republicans and to oppress minorities.

Gerrymandering is bad whether it's done by Republicans or by Democrats. In 5 months, Virginia voters will be deciding whether or not to turn their legislature over to the Democrats or not. That's right, this coming November, not in 2020. Blue America has a proposal:
A 5-4 decision that leaves gerrymandered districts in place.
It was 5-4 along partisan lines, of course. This means we take the fight to the state level.
Republicans cheat at elections but sometimes a change election can stop them. And SCOTUS sends a gay wedding cake case back to the lower court.
Republicans can't sue to protect their gerrymandered map, per SCOTUS.
