Redistricting Maps Show Big Changes

by lewwaters

From the Tacoma Tribune, “The new 10th District is centered on Olympia, includes some of Pierce County and reaches up into Shelton. It has no incumbent living in it and is divided between Republican and Democratic leaning areas.”

It appears the 3rd loses much of Thurston County and gains all of Klickitat County, making it more of a Republican district, which will help Jaime Herrera Beutler, who so far faces no significant challenge for reelection.

Also as expected, Denny Heck has announced his run in the 10th congressional district which by all accounts will be a very liberal district. I expect Denny will easily win his seat unless the GOP pulls a rabbit out of their hat up there.

UPDATE: Pierce County Councilman Dick Muri says he is running for the 10th on the GOP ticket. He just may give Denny ‘Heck’ 😉
